Mae McDonnell (Wharton), Chair of the Research Committee announces the 2020 research award winners and acknowledges research committee members.
2020 OMT Award Winners
I am delighted to report that the OMT Research Committee completed the process of selecting winners for all the OMT paper and symposium awards that will presented at the 2020 Academy of Management (AOM) Annual Meeting.
Nominees were identified by Program Chair Martin Kilduff based on the ratings of OMT reviewers. Then subgroups of Research Committee members read each award-nominated paper or symposium in one of the eight award categories and voted on their picks for the most outstanding work submitted to this year’s AOM conference.
Congratulations to all the award-winning authors and to those whose paper and symposia were nominated! The names of winners and runners-up are listed below. The formal presentation of the OMT Division’s awards will take place at the OMT Business Meeting in the Fall. We hope you will join us at the business meeting to celebrate the winners!
The OMT Business Meeting and Social Hour is also the perfect time to find out more about the OMT Research Committee, which is staffed by a dedicated group of OMT volunteers. Be a part of recognizing the excellence of OMT scholarship. Join the OMT Research Committee!

Approximately fifty OMT division members annually volunteer their time as part of the Research Committee. Volunteers are placed on one of eight sub-committees and are asked to read and rank the three to six papers or symposia that have been nominated. The committee’s work is done in a very compressed time frame, usually near the end of February and the beginning of March. Each year some new members are added to the Research Committee as long-serving members who have provided five years of valuable service to the division begin to cycle off. If you want to be a part of selecting which papers and symposia win awards, please volunteer. The requirements are that you are an active reviewer for the OMT division and that you can commit to being available during the time we review papers for awards. If you are interested you can contact Mae McDonnell (Wharton) via email (email@example.com).
