Message from Division Chair

October 2020

Hello GDO Community!

I'm writing as the 2020-2021 Chair of the GDO Division to invite you all to engage with the efforts of our division. In addition to welcoming your submissions (and reviews!) for the fabulous conference program, we also welcome your participation in a number of Executive Committee initiatives.

This year, we will continue to support initiatives such as the Global Ambassadors program, mid-year workshop series, and our awards committees. In addition, we have formed a subcommittee that is working on issues at the intersection of the Black Lives Matter movement and management scholarship.  

Please email me (eden.b.king@rice.edu) to indicate your interest in volunteering with GDO!
