    Apologies for cross-postings

     

    Dear colleagues,

     

    We would like to invite you to attend our interactive PDW  session 11324 entitled  Fostering Work-Life Inclusive Business Schools: Improving Organizational Science & Women's Equality, which will be held Saturday August 10, 2019 from 10:15- 12:15 pm at the Sheraton Back Bay Ballroom c. Pre-registration is not needed.

     

    Background

     

    Recent AACSB data shows that women represent only 20% of business school full professors. Whether this trend is due to work-family-life issues, and related organizational processes, cultures, and career practices remains unclear. This PDW builds on findings from a U.S. National Science Foundation Workshop held in the fall 2018  suggesting that enhancing understanding of the organizational science regarding the antecedents and characteristics of work-life inclusive contexts provides a fruitful pathway toward increasing women's career equality.  This workshop's goal is to foster interest and understanding in work-life inclusion as a form of diversity and to promote examination of how to improve work-life and women's career equality in business school contexts where many AOM members work. Through panel discussions, roundtable breakouts, and interactive presentations, participants will gain understanding of work-life inclusion as a form of diversity, generate future research ideas, and develop actionable strategies bridging research and practice. The PDW is organized as a 2 hour session.

     

    Academy members who share an interest in advancing understanding of the meaning, scholarship and practice of work-life inclusion should attend. This workshop brings together experts from different backgrounds to discuss the under-integrated state of organizational research regarding gender equality, HR, career, and identity linkages to work-life inclusion in business schools. Through panel discussions, roundtable breakouts, and interactive presentations, participants will gain understanding of work-life inclusion as a form of diversity, generate future research ideas, and develop actionable strategies bridging research and practice.
