2021 Professional Development Workshops: Call for Proposals
The Public and Non-profit Division (PNP) invites creative Professional Development Workshop (PDW) proposals that are interactive, innovative, and which enhance the skills of public and nonprofit scholars and practitioners. Submitters may want to develop workshops that relate to the 2021 All-Academy conference theme of "Bringing the Manager Back in Management."
Both PDW and Scholarly sessions may take place any day during the Annual Meeting, Friday, 30 July – Tuesday, 3 August.
We are particularly interested in PDW proposals focused on any of the following aims:
We especially welcome PDW workshops that leverage the unique nature of the Academy of Management meetings to enhance communication between Public and Nonprofit Division researchers and the broader community of management scholars. Proposals that are likely to engage scholars from other divisions in topics of interest to public and nonprofit scholars and create the capacity for multi or interdisciplinary methods or understandings will be given top priority.
The aforementioned preferences notwithstanding, we will duly consider all proposals that seek to enhance the professional development of the Public and Nonprofit Division's members.
PDWs provide the opportunity to experiment with new models and ideas for sessions that do not fit within the confines of the regular program. However, submitters should take care not to create proposals for PDWs that would be more appropriate in other conference formats such as panel sessions, symposia, and caucuses. If the primary purpose of your proposal is to gather scholars for a discussion or to present theories, ideas, or concepts, a PDW is probably not the appropriate forum.
Before submitting, please think about the following five questions as they pertain to a PDW.
In your PDW proposal, please include the following sections:
The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, 12 January 2021 at 17:00 (5pm) ET (NY Time). Please submit your PDW proposals here. Only submissions through the electronic system will be accepted. The Submission Center is scheduled to open in early December 2020 and proposals will be considered on a rolling basis. Please note that there is limited space on the PDW program, so acceptance of proposals is competitive.
