    Global connections: GDO's Global Ambassadors broadening the AOM experience for emerging international members

    The Gender & Diversity in Organizations Division (GDO) of the Academy of Management (AOM) invites participants for a Professional Development Workshop at the 2020 AOM virtual conference.

    This workshop is targeted towards individuals who are:

    • From an emerging economy or a region that is currently underrepresented at AOM. This includes most countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia, and Eastern Europe.
    • Not currently members of AOM's GDO Division but who may be interested in joining.
    • Conducting research on topics related to Diversity Management.

    The workshop is intended to help participants build stronger connections to and integration within the GDO and AOM communities and to hone research paper development skills. Each participant will be matched with current GDO/AOM member mentors who will help them to network at future AOM meetings and provide feedback on future AOM conference paper submissions. The synchronous online format includes a panel session with Management experts from 5 world regions and roundtable breakout room sessions with panelists and GDO Global Ambassadors.

    The workshop will be held synchronously online on Friday, August 7th, 6-8am EST. AOM conference registration is required.

    If you are interested in attending, please send the following information to A.K. Ward (akward@vt.edu):

    • Your name, current institution, and professional status (e.g., Professor, Doctoral Student)
    • The emerging/underrepresented region with which you are affiliated
    • A one-sentence summary of your research interests (or a few key words)
    • Whether you would like to be considered for a potential registration scholarship (these are limited)
