The Public and Nonprofit Division (PNP) invites creative Professional Development Workshop (PDW) proposals that are interactive, innovative, and will enhance the skills of public and nonprofit scholars and practitioners. Submitters may want to develop workshops that relate to the 2020 All-Academy conference theme of "Broadening Our Sight."Professional Development Workshop (PDW) sessions at the annual Academy of Management meeting will be held Friday, August 7th and Saturday, August 8th, 2020 from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM.We are particularly interested in PDW proposals focused on any of the following:
PDWs provide the opportunity to experiment with new models and ideas for sessions that do not fit within the confines of the regular program. PDWs can take place on-site at a conference hotel or off-site at another location in the community. 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, the PDW is probably not the appropriate forum. See this page for more information about different formats at AoM.Before submitting, please think about the following five questions as they pertain to a PDW.
