    Call For Applications: SIM Division Doctoral Consortium PDW 2024

    August 8-9, 2024

    Chicago, Illinois, USA

    The Social Issues in Management (SIM) Division will offer an in-person Doctoral Consortium during this year's Academy of Management Meeting. The event will begin with a Fireside chat with a leading SIM scholar on Thursday, August 8, at 6:00pm followed by dinner, while the body of the consortium will be held on Friday, August 9, from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm. Unfortunately, no virtual attendance will be possible this year.

    The SIM Doctoral Consortium aims to inspire and to inform doctoral students focusing on SIM topics about elements leading to success and impact in their scholarship, teaching, service, and lives as academics. Distinguished SIM scholars (see list below) will share their knowledge, participate in panel debates, and engage with students. Junior SIM faculty will share their recent experiences with their fruitful dissertation process, the job market, and with mastering teaching. The PDW is designed to be informative and interactive. In general, participating students will develop a "survival toolkit" for completing their doctoral program and early professional career, as well as inspiration for making an impact in the world through your work. Students will also be paired with a mentor to provide more individual attention and advice over lunch.

    The SIM Doctoral Consortium is designed for current PhD students with an interest in Social Issues in Management. We welcome participants from all stages of the PhD program to attend, though students more advanced in their doctoral program will be given priority in the event of over-subscription. SIM will pay the AOM student registration fee for SIM members who are accepted to this Doctoral Consortium. The consortium is free of charge.

    I acknowledge that Loyola University Chicago resides on the native homelands of the Indigenous people of the Odawa, Potawatomi, and Ojibwe nations, who joined together into the Council of Three Fires. Along with several other tribes, I know that their lives and livelihoods were destroyed in part by the historical events of displacement, conquest, and dehumanization leading up to the establishment of Chicago and Illinois. I want to remember and honor what was lost, acknowledge how I directly benefit from other people's pain and loss, and uplift the fortitude and resilience of Indigenous communities surviving and thriving today. I recognize their continued connection to this region and give thanks to them for allowing us to live, work, and learn on their traditional homelands. I offer my respect to their communities and to all Indigenous people, past, present and future.
