The Diversity and Inclusion Theme Committee (D&ITC) and the Practice Theme Committee (PTC) of the Academy of Management are proud to announce the winner of the 2018 AOM D&ITC Diversity & Inclusion Best Practices Award, which will be awarded at this year’s Annual Academy of Management Meeting in Chicago. Congratulations to the winner!
- The 2018 D&ITC Award is given to the Organization and Management Theory Division for addressing the needs of their division regarding interacting with new members, through the following long-term initiatives: 1) OMT cafes for casual meetups with members; 2) “OMT Bike” which provided an informal outdoor approach to connecting with each other; 3) a new member workshop which created opportunities for new members to interact with established division members; 4) increasing reviewer engagement and 5) the addition of many off-site conference events created to engage new and current members
Please join us in congratulating the winners at the Diversity and Inclusion in the Academy: A Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, August 11, 2018, 4-5pm, Swissôtel, Montreux 3. This interactive session will include a report of progress since last year, as well as a participant-based sharing of inclusion experiences in the Academy and development of best practices for making the AOM more diverse and inclusive.
Once again, congratulations to the recipients of this year’s D&ITC (and PTC) Awards! We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
