OB Junior Faculty Workshop

Academy of Management
August 5-6, 2016

The 2016 OB Junior Faculty Workshop will be held on August 5th (5:00pm – 9:00pm) and August 6th (8:00am – 4:00pm) as part of the pre-conference program at the AOM meeting in Anaheim, CA.

The workshop will include engaging panel and small group research discussions with a diverse and accomplished group of invited Faculty Fellows.

Panel discussions will include advice on how to conduct high-impact research, have impact as a teacher and mentor, balance work and personal life, and thrive in the tenure process. Table discussions will provide a unique opportunity to gain feedback on your own research with some of our field’s leading scholars.

The Faculty Fellows for this workshop are:

We will also hold small group discussions with editors of top management journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Leadership Quarterly, Organization Science, Group & Organization Management, Academy of Learning and Education, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Personnel Psychology, and the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology.

Sample comments from the 2015 workshop included:

  • “Meeting with journal editors was a fabulous opportunity”
  • “Matching with faculty mentors in small group setting was so interesting and helpful”; “I got some great feedback ideas to develop my research”
  • “This workshop was extremely helpful to me and I would recommend it to any junior OB or IO faculty. It was great to meet all of the other workshop participants and the faculty speakers/mentors had so many wonderful pieces of advice to give us.”
