    We are pleased to announce that the Organization and Management Theory (OMT) division will hold its Global Research Consortium on Saturday, August 10, 2024, as part of the Academy of Management (AOM) Annual Meeting in Chicago USA.

    This consortium is a forum for organizational scholars studying under-represented non-western settings across domains (micro/macro) and fields (organization theory, strategic management, organizational behavior, entrepreneurship, and so on). It includes showcase presentations, feedback sessions, and panel discussions on topics such as developing organizational scholarship using global settings, mentoring for research based in international contexts, and strategies for overcoming challenges and exploiting opportunities for high-quality organizational research using diverse settings.

    Scholars at all stages of academic careers are invited to apply. We particularly welcome scholars who would like to conduct or expand their research to under-represented non-western regions of the world.

    2. Roundtable discussions and feedback on research proposals
    3. Networking opportunities with peers and faculty mentors
