    We are pleased to invite submissions to the third Dismantling Bias in Organizations conference at Purdue University Krannert School of Management. The purpose of the "Dismantling Bias in Organizations" conference is to advance knowledge and understanding that bridges the theory, science, and practice of designing, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based policies, practices, cultures, and interventions that promote inclusion and career equality for women and minorities comprising diverse social identity groups in the workplace and societal institutions. Our goal is to bring together a community of scholars across disciplines, and business leaders who share interests in advancing the understanding of diversity and inclusion to link science, policy, and practice perspectives. 

    The theme of the third Dismantling Bias Conference is "Shifting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Paradigms for the Workplace of the Future." The conference will include interactive plenary sessions: including leading diversity scholars and corporate leaders. There will also be small group breakout sessions organized by paper track topics for scholars to discuss and get feedback on their research work in progress.; and research for business leaders and policymakers to discuss developments.

Submissions from all fields and disciplines are welcome. The abstract will be blind reviewed and should include your theoretical literature grounding, how your paper relates to the current diversity and inclusion literature, and, if empirical, if possible preliminary results or at a minimum plans for these results, and the implications of your study.  If selected, you will be asked to submit a rough draft of the work in progress paper before the conference, and register  to attend. You will be assigned to meet in breakout sessions with scholars who share your interests during part of the conference to get feedback to improve your paper.

    Special OBHDP Issue Publishing Opportunity. While papers on all aspects of gender, diversity, and inclusion are encouraged, authors of high-quality work in progress papers on allyship, advocacy, and social justice to support marginalized groups in the workplace are especially encouraged to submit abstracts on original work in progress. A special issue of Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes (OBHDP), Allyship, Advocacy and Social Justice to Support Equality for Marginalized Groups in the Workplace, is planned with a submission deadline on June 1, 2022. The call for papers can be found here.  

    While attendance at the conference is not at all required to submit to the special issue and presenting at the conference is no guarantee that a paper will be considered for the issue, interested scholars who plan to submit to the OBHDP special issue and would like to get peer mentoring feedback on their paper drafts prior to the journal submission are encouraged to attend the conference. Accepted abstracts relevant to the special issue themes will have their own research tracks.
