    PDW "A microfinance lens on hybridity: Key takeaways, limitations, and opportunities" is Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021, 1pm – 2:30pm EDT


    Microfinance has been used as primary empirical settings to advance research on hybrid organizing. In this PDW, we take stock of this literature and reflect on how this empirical setting has defined our knowledge on hybridity and, more broadly, on decision making under conditions of institutional complexity.

    The workshop is organized around three main questions: 1) what are the key takeaways for hybridity that have emerged from research on microfinance? 2) what are the potential limitations of microfinance as a setting to advance our understanding of hybridity? and 3) what are the opportunities offered by the microfinance setting? We will reflect on these questions with a series of three panel discussions, including senior and junior scholars with past and current research programs on microfinance. We will then continue the discussion on these and other topics of relevance to participant in breakout groups.


    Panelists:

    • Joshua Ault, Thunderbird School of Global Management at ASU
    • Andrew Spicer, U. of South Carolina
    • Eric Y.-F. Zhao, Indiana U., Bloomington
    • Kamal Munir, Cambridge Judge Business School
    • Andrea Wessendorf, Cambridge Judge Business School

    Organizers:

    • Silvia Dorado, U. of Massachusetts, Boston
    • Kamini Gupta, King's College London
    • Sarah Wolfolds, Cornell University

    Divisions:

    OMT (sponsor), SIM


    What to expect?

    This workshop will reflect on the key takeaways derived from this research, the potential limitations of reliance on microfinance, and future opportunities; and is therefore relevant for both senior and junior scholars working in areas such as hybrid organizing, institutional complexity, institutional logics, organization theory and social issues in management. The workshop format reflects our two main goals: 1) to present a broad range of perspectives; and 2) to encourage discussion among attendees both with the panel as a whole and in greater detail in smaller groups. Thus, we have structured the PDW to include panel presentations, a Q&A with the whole group, and breakout rooms, each with one of the panelists. In the breakout rooms, the participants will get an opportunity to share reflections on research questions of interest to them that could be studied using the microfinance context and receive feedback from panelists.

    Registration:

    Registration is not needed.
