This year’s theme, "Understanding the Inclusive Organization
", has significant meaning for the Academy of Management as a whole: not only do our sessions
highlight the management and organizational questions that advance our understanding of the inclusive
organization, the Academy itself has realized inclusivity through our membership.
This year, as you explore the Annual Meeting in Boston, you’ll notice that attendees hail from more countries than ever before (92, to be exact), and more members from around the world will be traveling to Boston than those from within the U.S. We are well on our way to reaching our 2022 goal of becoming the premier global community for management and organization scholars.
To answer the calls from the business community for practices and policies designed to drive the empowerment and contributions of their workforce, our members have responded with an incredible variety of sessions. More than
will discuss such issues as inclusivity of LGBTQ employees, women’s impact on diversity, justice
in the #MeToo era, and adapting to AI on a global scale.
