Global PDW

What: OMT Global PDW on ‘Doing Organizational Research Around the World: Opportunities and Challenges’

Where: AOM 2021, asynchronous.

When (Application deadline): May 30, 2020 – LIMITED SEATS

How? Submit 4000 word research proposal by email


The Organization & Management Theory Division is hosting the “Global PDW” again at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management. The objective of the workshop is to facilitate networking and discussion around the unique challenges and opportunities of planning, implementing, and publishing high-quality organizational research using international settings, specifically outside North America.

Our panelists and mentors are scholars that have successfully conducted organizational research using data from around the world including “non-traditional” / international locales. The participants will also get a chance to get feedback on their own research in small group setting, to exchange with peers, and to interact with mentors and receive feedback from them either individually or in very small groups.

This PDW is interactive, and we will take advantage of different technological platforms to increase the quality of these interactions. In the interest of inclusivity, this PDW will be asynchronous, which will allow participants and mentors to meet at a convenient time scheduled by them without the strictures of traditional PDWs.

Submission Guidelines: If you have research that uses a setting outside North America, and your research focuses on organization and management theory related topics, we encourage you to apply. If you are interested by the challenges, joys, and tribulations of conducting research in “non-traditional” locales, we encourage you to apply. If you are based in a location outside of the OCDE, loosely speaking, we encourage you to apply.

To facilitate close personal engagement and feedback from the mentors, space for this consortium is limited and participation is by application only.

Applications consist of a research proposal of an unpublished study based in an international / “non-traditional” setting. The research proposal should not exceed 4,000 words. (This word count includes all text in the charts, graphs, diagrams, etc., including references.)

Please be sure to include a clear description that summarizes the research question, findings, and theoretical and substantive contribution. Please email your abstract by May 30 2021.

We look forward to meeting you (virtually) in Vancouver!
