    Junior Faculty Consortium: March 7, 2019

    The Western Academy of Management invites doctoral students and junior faculty to apply for the 2019 WAM Doctoral Student Consortium or the Junior Faculty Consortium in Rohnert Park, CA (in Sonoma County). We encourage colleagues to share this information with anyone who may be interested in applying. The consortia are free of charge. We are accepting applications to the consortia through January 15, 2019.

    The Doctoral Student Consortium begins at 3pm March 6th and continues on March 7th until the opening session for WAM 2019. Attendees should be available to attend the full two days of sessions. The program is designed to enhance students' development as researchers and teachers, as well as to provide important networking opportunities including with the 2019 Ascendant Scholars and the Journal of Management Inquiry's Outstanding Scholar, Barry M. Staw (University of California, Berkeley). The Western Academy of Management is known to be a warm and welcoming group of scholars.

    The Junior Faculty Consortium begins at 8 am Thursday March 7th and runs until that afternoon's WAM 2019 Opening Session. For those who will arrive on Wednesday evening and are interested in informally meeting for dinner, we will facilitate contact with others attending the Jr. Faculty Consortium. The aim of the Consortium is to develop a supportive community of scholars. The consortium will include a mix of panels, presentations, and small group discussions about research, publishing, teaching, and other career-related issues. It will provide opportunities to network with scholars including the 2019 Ascendant Scholars and the Journal of Management Inquiry's Outstanding Scholar, Barry M. Staw (University of California, Berkeley).
