Professional Development Workshops (PDW) Call for Submissions

Thank you for your interest in submitting a proposal for the 74th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management. The submission system is now CLOSED. We wish those of you who submitted the best of luck, and we hope to see you all in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in August 2014.


Message from the AOM PDW Program Chair, Anita M. McGahan
To ensure that your submission is correct and that it is reviewed, please carefully read through all of the guidelines and instructions in the pages that follow, and Please, Please Submit Early! The submission website is scheduled to open in early November and the submission deadline is not until January 14. That leaves more than two months for submissions which I hope you will take advantage of.
If you wait until the last minute to submit, you are more likely to make errors on the submission or forget to add a participant or, worse, forget to finalize  your submission (i.e., complete a checklist to confirm that your proposal adheres to the proper guidelines). Division Program and PDW Chairs have a short period of time to check-in and assign for review all of the submissions for their divisions before making final decisions. Any submission that is not finalized or doesn’t follow all the proper guidelines will automatically NOT be reviewed.  So please submit early and allow yourself time to make any necessary corrections.



The Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) are a platform for colleagues to share knowledge and expertise and foster the professional development of workshop participants. It is an opportunity to develop innovative and creative workshops that will benefit Academy members. The PDW program is coordinated by the Academy's many divisions, interest groups, and theme committees. You must submit your PDW proposal online via the Academy's submission website.  If you would like to discuss your ideas prior to submitting, please contact the appropriate PDW chair by December 13, 2013.
