    2024 OMT "Navigating the First Years of Your PhD" PDW

    Call for Nominations

    Organizer: Forrest Briscoe, OMT Division Chair

    Nomination Deadline: May 17, 2024

    We are pleased to announce that the Organization and Management Theory (OMT) division will again host our PDW, "Navigating the first years of your PhD," at the Academy of Management (AOM) Annual Meeting. The event is tentatively scheduled for Saturday August 10, 2024, in-person in Chicago.

    This workshop is aimed at PhD students at the early stages of their PhD. Participants explore with experienced scholars how OMT scholarship and the OMT Division can help them turn their research ideas into robust and impactful academic knowledge. They also share with other participants their experiences of being a doctoral student and begin to build their own international network.

    The PDW will include a combination of the following activities:

    ·       Interactive roundtables with experienced OMT scholars and other student participants, for discussing research interests

    ·       A "mini OMT Meetup" for 1-on-1 interaction between students and OMT executive committee members, modeled after our popular year-round OMT Meet Ups program.

    ·       Panel Q&A to ask questions hear about OMT research trends, careers, and opportunities in the division.

    ·       Networking opportunities with peers and faculty participants.

    OMT Executive Committee participants (more may be added):

    Emily Block, OMT Rep-at-Large

    Eva Boxenbaum, OMT Past Division Chair

    Forrest Briscoe, OMT Division Chair

    Emilio Castilla, OMT Division Chair-Elect

    Shelby Gai, OMT Member Outreach Chair

    Kevin Lee, OMT Communication Chair-Elect

    Massimo Maoret, OMT Research Committee Chair

    Shubha Patvardhan, OMT Rep-at-Large

    Wendy Smith, OMT Program Chair

    The PDW is designed to allow for high levels of faculty-student interaction. To maintain a high faculty/student ratio, space for this event is limited. Interested students must be nominated by their PhD supervisor or the coordinator of their PhD program and must be OMT members (or join now).

    Nomination Instructions:
