It's time for the first announcement of this year's CAR award winners! We start with the Michael Driver Best Symposium Award.
Out of all submitted symposia, we compiled a set of the three most highly rated sessions (based on reviewer scores) as nominees for this year's Best Symposium Award. A committee of four careers division scholars examined these nominees based on six criteria: (1) novel ideas and contribution, (2) innovative data/methods/analyses, (3) future research implications, (4) practical implications, (5) fit with the Careers Division, and (6) coherence of the studies in the symposium. The committee for this year consisted of Alexander Newman (chair), Lindsey Greco, Marijke Verbruggen, and Mo Wang.
The nominated symposia were:
The Gig Work Phenomenon: Insights Into Current Multidisciplinary Research and Trending Topics.
Organizers: Annabelle Hofer (University of Bern, Switzerland), Caroline Straub (Bern University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland), and Daniel Spurk (University of Bern, Switzerland).
Changing Landscapes: Gender Inequality and Remediation in Labor Markets and Organizations.
Organizers: Adina Sterling (Stanford Graduate School, USA) and Shiya Wang (Stanford Graduate School, USA).
"With or Without you": Relationships and Taking Stock of Their Influence on Work Identity.
Organizers: David M. Sluss (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA), Yufei Zhong (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA), and Katie L. Badura (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA).
And the winners are…. **drumrolls**
