This PDW (in its third year) brings together a distinguished panel of scholars and practitioners to stimulate an interactive and developmental conversation on driving forward research in management on the future of work. Our core focus will be on collectively shaping a promising agenda for research on the topic so that scholars can contribute rigorous and relevant research that adds to ongoing dialogues and offer theoretical and practical solutions to ongoing transformations in the world of work.
One aim of the PDW is to spark ideas for the Future of Work Research Prize, sponsored by the University of Zurich's Center for Leadership in the Future of Work, which funds promising research on the topic of the future of work. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the research prize and receive feedback on ideas they may submit.

Morela Hernandez (University of Michigan), Associate Editor, AMR
