  • OB@AOM Bridging Organizational Behavior and Entrepreneurship

    The OB Division, in collaboration with the ENT Division and sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation, organizes a PDW “Bridging Organizational Behavior and Entrepreneurship, for the 2022 AOM Annual Meeting, in-person in Seattle, WA. The aim of this PDW is to stimulate and help develop research at the interface of organizational behavior and entrepreneurship.

     

    We invite researchers interested in participating to submit a short description of their research at the interface of OB and ENT that they seek to further develop. This can be a short research proposal, an extended summary of a study that you seek to develop for publication, or something that is in-between these two stages of research. At the PDW, you will receive feedback on your research from one of our expert panelists.

     

    Submissions should be no longer than 10 pages all included (12 font, 1 in margins, double-spaced) and received no later than June 1, 2022 (but we encourage submitting earlier). Submission should be send to Daan van Knippenberg .

     

    There is a cap on the number of participants this PDW is able to host. We will therefore select submissions based on fit with the PDW and quality, and follow up with an accept/reject decision asap after June 1. Please note that as with all AOM program activities, submitting your application implies a commitment to participate in the (in-person) session if accepted.

  • OB@AOM Research at the Intersection of Work and Volunteering

    This PDW is aimed at attracting scholars from various contributing disciplines, including Organizational Behavior, Human Resources, Public and Nonprofit Management, and Social Issues in Management. Research topics include, among others, corporate volunteering programs, volunteer management, and individual strategies for managing the intersection of work and volunteering. Our objectives are: (1) bringing together the inter-divisional research community focusing on work and volunteering; (2) supporting and developing ideas and manuscripts through feedback and discussions; (3) discussing ways forward and visions for the research community and the literature to which we contribute. Sections of the workshop will include an overview of the field of research, round-table discussions of pre-submitted papers and research ideas as well as a plenary discussion.

     

    Submissions/Registration:

    We welcome working papers and extended abstracts (min. 1,500 words for abstracts) on the above topics, to be submitted to Bethania Antunes () by the deadline June 20, 2022. We will accept a maximum of 20 working papers/extended abstracts based on research relevance and quality.

  • OB@AOM 14th Annual OB Research Incubator

    We invite you to submit a research proposal for the 14th Annual OB Research Incubator, a Professional Development Workshop that provides an exciting opportunity for researchers to receive constructive feedback and guidance from senior OB scholars and ignite connections and ongoing dialogue around topics of common interest. This session is open to both junior and senior scholars who are conducting research on OB-related topics.

     

    During the virtual session, participants will meet in a small group setting with leading OB scholars, who will provide direct and specific feedback on your research project. Feedback will be particularly focused on helping you address the challenges you are currently facing in bringing a project to fruition.

     

    In order to increase engagement with the session and value of the feedback, proposals may be shared with the other participant(s) assigned to a specific facilitator. If you do not want your proposal shared this way, please specifically note that on the submission form.

    • Brief abstract and four keywords

    • Overview of the research

    • Research topic

    • Conceptual framework

    • Research questions

    • Methods

    • Challenges (these are the areas on which you would like to focus discussion). Please list specific questions you'd like a facilitator to answer.

    • References

     

    Important: On the submission form, please identify up to 3 facilitators that you believe are best suited to provide guidance on your proposal.

     

    Please submit your research proposal by Monday, June 26, 2022, using the following webform (you will be able to edit your submission at any time prior to the deadline):

     

     

    Once your proposal is approved, we will send you the registration code. At that point, interested participants will need to register online at the AOM PDW website.

  • OB Division’s All Year Round PDW - Burnout and Work-Life Balance: AOM

    Learning to manage work and life outside of work continues to be one of the largest challenges for academics. Couple this recurrent struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic and it is easy to understand why we are currently facing a well-being crisis. In this PDW, we invite you to hear from leading scholars in the field about their own personal experiences of burnout and work-life balance as well as how they have navigated this tension in their own lives. Throughout the session, we will provide a safe space to connect with others, receive support, and workshop a personal game plan to manage these tensions and develop healthier strategies that focus on both preventing and managing burnout. Participants in this virtual PDW will also be invited to an in-person social at AOM 2022 in Seattle to reconnect with the speakers, panelists, and other attendees and reflect on their success in implementing their “academic well-being game plan.”
