VOTING OPEN: GDO Proposed Domain Name Change
Dear GDO Members
As your current division chair, I invite you to take a few seconds to ratify the GDO Division’s proposed name change. You will receive an invitation to coast your vote from firstname.lastname@example.org. The vote will take place between October 10 to 24, 2022.
Our proposed new division name is Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).
This strategic initiative is derived from our most recent five-year review, completed in 2020. The division is proposing a new name and updated domain statement (which was last revised in 2007) in an effort to reflect our members’ evolving scholarship and interests, and to grow our membership.
In our revised domain statement, we embrace diverse perspectives in organizational research and education to enable equal treatment and equitable outcomes, and we support social justice through the inclusion of marginalized voices in our members’ research, teaching, and practice. A full revised statement is provided below.
After a thorough review process, our proposal received unanimous support from the other divisions and the Board of Governors. It is now your turn to provide a final endorsement. The bylaws require the approval of changes by a simple majority of those who cast a vote.
The deadline to vote is October 24, 2022. Please cast your vote now; it takes less than a minute. The committee tasked with this change has worked hard on this, with input and feedback from the division members. I hope you will acknowledge their efforts by taking a few moments to vote right now; we need your vote to conform with the AoM bylaws.
Thank you for your participation and ongoing support of our Division.
I hope to see you all at the Boston Annual Meeting as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our founding as the Women in Management Interest Group.
Chair, GDO Division
GDO Writing Mentorship Virtual Workshop
We invite applicants for the GDO Writing Mentorship Workshop, running from October to December 2022. The purpose of this workshop is to support early career researchers in developing manuscripts for conference and journal submissions, and to promote the development of high quality D&I research.
We especially welcome participation from researchers outside of North America. The timing of this workshop is intended to support author's AOM conference submissions.
The GDO writing mentorship workshop is a virtual session wherein submitting authors will get one-on-one feedback from Editors and/or Editorial Board members on their submitted papers. Authors will benefit from an understanding of how Editors and reviewers approach submitted manuscripts.
Workshop papers should focus on D&I topics.
Timeline and steps:
- Please send a one-page extended abstract by October 10, 2022 to the organizers. Note that the focus of submissions should be on D&I topics.
- Accepted authors will be notified by October 17, 2022
- Full-length papers are due by November 10, 2022.
- Each accepted paper will be assigned to one Editor or Editorial Board member who will give the author(s) one-on-one feedback via Zoom during late November or early December 2022.
