AoM 2020 online - my second virtual conference
Brief report on the AoM virtual conference in August 2020
After attending the Academy of International Business virtual conference early July, I registered for the Academy of Management conference as well. If you did too, but haven't had a chance to watch (m)any sessions yet, here are some recommendations for sessions you may find interesting.
Career & publishing advice
- The Careers division Plenary session Lost...or Found in Translation? Exploring Ways to Broaden our Sight on Careers Research and Beyond features two videos with panelists from many related AoM divisions. Contains really good ideas about interdisciplinary research, very useful for anyone engaging in research spanning (sub)disciplines.
- A professional development workshop on Unsung Papers: Ideas That Got Away and Reflections from Their Authors, papers that didn't quite have the success the authors expected. A great session with a panel of truly inspiring, but very modest academics. Lots of tips on how to ensure your papers get the impact they deserve, many centering around topics I have discussed in these two 8-part blogpost series:
Gender in academia
- Our session on Innovative Approaches to Creating Gender Inclusive Academic Environments where I presented CYGNA (see video below). You can see the panelists (yours truly, Carol Kulik, Diana Bilimoria and Kathleen McGinn) above. If you go to the session, please:
- Watch the wonderful videos by Belinda Rae; the 30-second ones are on a playlist here
- Leave some questions and/or reflections for us in the chat before the end of August
- Take the fun polls designed by session organizer Jill Gould
- The Nevertheless She Persisted session was not recorded in order to maintain confidentiality, but here you'll find a link to some useful materials; one of them is attached to this email.
- Virtual work and women's career equality, some really nice presentations with interesting research in this area as well as an interactive Q&A. Recommend for a researchers interested in virtual work, as well as those interested in current challenges facing women in the pandemic.
Content related sessions
- OB plenary on COVID-19, especially the 9-min reel with dozens of papers on the topic presented in 15-sec each. You can find the reel and all COVID-19 related papers here.
- GLOBE 2020: Understanding Cultural Foundations of Trust Across Countries. Absolutely fascinating insight into an ongoing research project with data collection in nearly 150 countries. This is what conferences are for, getting the latest insights fresh off the press!
- Broadening our Sight by Expanding our Horizons: The Future of Intercultural Competence Research. Great symposium with five excellent speakers well-known in the field who really engaged with the topic and each others' presentations. I particularly loved Snejina's passionate plea for research making a difference:
"we need to be willing to focus on collective gain as a research community by doing well-grounded and long-term studies rather than focus on individual gains by doing rushed small-scale projects."
