  • 1.  Call for Proposals - Social Movements, Stakeholders, & Nonmarket Strategy AOM PDW

    Posted 06-23-2023 10:54

    Submit your project proposals by June 30th!

    Please join us for our 7th annual professional development workshop on Social Movements, Stakeholders, and Nonmarket Strategy at the 2023 Academy of Management Annual Meeting on Saturday, August 5th from 8:00 – 11:00 am.

    Our current five-year focus is on how well our scholarly efforts address the "grand challenges" influencing organizations. This year, we'll be exploring the micro foundations of the relationship between social movements and firms and considering how we can more responsibly engage with the communities we study. We'll begin with an expert panel and end with project feedback roundtables. The expert panel discussion is open to everyone – no registration required (see panelist bios below). 

    The project feedback roundtables are an opportunity to discuss a current project or new idea with several expert discussants and participants - please see the list of potential table topics and discussants below. These small group discussions provide a great opportunity to receive feedback, brainstorm future directions, learn about available resources, and expand your networks. All are welcome to apply for the roundtables – from seasoned social movements and markets scholars to those who are just entering this research space.

    To apply for the project feedback roundtable portion of the PDW, please submit a 3 page research proposal by June 30th:   For any questions regarding the proposal submission process, please contact Jun Byun at 

    We hope to see you in Boston!
