    Revised Call for Nominations for OMT Doctoral Consortium

    Revised Nomination Deadline: June 15, 2020

    We are pleased to announce that the Organization and Management Theory (OMT) division will be holding a virtual Doctoral Student Consortium as part of this year's Academy of Management Annual Meeting. The consortium will include a combination of the following:

    1.   Live panels/presentations followed by breakout room discussions. The formal presentation portion will take place on the originally scheduled date of August 7 and will be recorded and posted for those who cannot attend live.
    2. Live roundtable discussions around research and teaching done through breakout rooms on the originally scheduled date of August 7.  We will schedule these in multiple time-zones for different groups of mentors and participants (e.g., North America, Europe and Asia friendly times) to optimize participation.
    3. Small group (1 mentor, 2 or 3 students) mentoring: We will match mentors with two or three students for mentoring which will be scheduled at a time that works for everyone in your group.
    4. Randomly assigned café or drink chat sessions on August 7.  Again, these will be in multiple time zones to accommodate our members.
