    Stigma versus Stigmatization: Differentiating Stigma from its Processes
    Professional Development Workshop
    2022 Academy of Management Annual Meeting
    5-9 August 2022 - Virtual or Hybrid*

    *Exact date/time and format will be updated once finalized

    We are excited to announce the continuation of the Professional Development Workshop focused on stigma research at the Academy of Management Meeting sponsored by the Organization and Management Theory division. This PDW aims to continue our successful PDWs on organizational stigma at the AOM meetings. Building on our previous PDWs, we aim to encourage theoretically and methodologically consistent research on stigma as well as identify opportunities for future research efforts.This year's PDW consists of three parts:

    1. An introduction that defines the topic and focal theme of "Stigma vs. Stigmatization"
    2. Presentations and discussions by distinguished speakers – Bryant Hudson and Cynthia Devers – on understanding and determining "Stigma vs. Stigmatization." The discussion will conclude with an open discussion amongst all workshop facilitators.
    3. Thematic roundtables, each facilitated by well-known scholars, which will also focus upon "challenges" that researchers are experiencing in positioning, conceptualizing, and publishing their work. Participants need to submit a 1-2-page document with an abstract of a project and a challenge statement that outlines which issue(s) they would like to discuss at the roundtables.

    *The feature presentations/discussions are open to anyone attending AOM 2022, but the roundtables will be limited to those that have applied with submissions and been accepted.
