OMT WebOrganization and Management Theory Division of the Academy of Management
We have a really exciting set of PDW offerings this year at OMT after a record number of submissions! The program represents our continuing effort to offer multiple ways for our members to meet and engage with each other in Vancouver, making OMT the place to be!
In addition to our usual wide variety of high-quality topical workshops, we have some exciting new offerings this year including:
The OMT Cafe (Friday and Saturday at various times throughout the day) series are topically themed discussions in popular local cafes where folks can come together to meet others with similar interests in a casual self-hosted cafe setting. The topics include:
When planning your pre-conference program, you can search for "OMT Cafe" in the program to find the cafes and times of your choosing. No pre-registration is required - just come to the cafe and meet up with other members who share your interests.
The inaugural OMT New and Returning Member Networking and Research Forum (Friday 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm) was created especially to help members to feel “at home” in the OMT division. We designed the forum so that you can meet leading scholars in the OMT division, meet other new members of the division, and discuss research with other scholars who share similar interests. The forum includes a welcome and overview of the OMT Division and research discussions moderated by renowned scholars who actively conduct research in a particular area of interest. As a participant in the forum, you can self-select into several research themes of your choice. Research themes will be organized by theory, context and methodology.
OMT Bike is a series of organized bike rides to enjoy the Vancouver outdoors together while meeting other academy members. There will be two rides this year:
For both OMT Bike rides, please be sure to sign up on the PDW website as space is limited. Registration includes bike rental, helmet and lock.
