Sustainability Ph.D. Community

The Sustainability Ph.D. Community is a recently founded online community open to all Ph.D. students whose interest lies at the intersection between organizations and the natural environment. The Community is a self-organized platform by students.

We think that now, more than ever, it is important not to feel isolated and to keep and develop relationships with peers.

With the support of the ONE Division of the Academy of Management and GRONEN, we created a community among Ph.D. students that, one year after its creation, already consists of over 250 members from all over the world - and it is growing fast!

The Community aims to provide feedback on each other’s work, get to know each other, find new collaborations, share opportunities and initiatives relevant to our field, find new conference buddies, and build long-lasting relationships.

We meet once a month either to discuss the research work of one or more community members or to have guest speaker sessions. For guest speaker sessions, faculty and other special guests will be involved in sessions such as past events like “Navigating the Job Market,” the “Meet the Associations” events, and the “Meet the Editors.”

If you are interested in joining us, please fill out this form, and we will contact you soon with more details!

Feel free to share this initiative with Ph.D. students who might be interested in joining.
