Dear Academy Members
The Diversity and Inclusion Theme Committee (D&ITC) of the Academy of Management is proud to announce the winners of the two 2017 AOM D&ITC Awards for diversity and inclusion of members which will be given at this year’s Annual Academy of Management Meeting in Atlanta. Congratulations to the winners and also to all nominees!
- The D&ITC Award is given to Gender and Diversity in Organizations (GDO) Division for improvement in member diversity and inclusion through practices such as Publishing Diversity Research Workshop, Mentor-mentee match at consortium, GDO on the market, and Tales from a script, among others, and the Division’s vision for, and impact on, diversity and inclusion.
- The D&ITC Award is given to Strategizing Activities and Practices (SAP) Interest Group for 1) increasing the interaction and networking of our diverse members during the Annual Meeting; 2) developing comprehensive support for doctoral students and early career scholars; 3) integrating new members quickly into the SAP community; 4) facilitating ongoing community building with our members outside the Annual Meeting.
Please join us in congratulating the winners at the Diversity and Inclusion in the Academy: A Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, Aug 5th 2017, 2:00-4:00pm, at Hilton Atlanta in Room 218. This highly interactive session will include a report of progress since last year, but the primary activity will be participant-based sharing of inclusion experiences in the Academy and development of best practices for making the AOM more diverse and inclusive.
We thank our sponsors – George Mason University School of Business, University of Tennessee Haslam College of Business, City University of Hong Kong, College of Business, Department of Management, Western Michigan University Haworth College of Business, and Queen Mary University of London-Buse Guralp for this invaluable support.
As in previous years, the D&ITC offers a number of thought provoking and highly engaging sessions at the upcoming AOM Annual Meeting in Atlanta. We would like to cordially invite all practitioners and academics interested in diversity and inclusion to attend our PDWs, Business Meeting and Social Event as outlined below.
Once again, congratulations to the recipients of this year’s PTC Awards! We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
