    For the 6th time in a row, the Strategy-as-Practice Interest Group (SAP) is inviting junior scholars to participate in the SAP Doctoral and Early Career Program (ECP) during the annual conference of the AOM.

    During this compelling event participants learn about and discuss topics and questions around current, burning topics (e.g. digitalization) and methods (e.g. digital ethnography). It is specially tailored to guide doctoral and early career scholars who are interested in researching SAP-related topics and methods. The ECP consists of virtual panels, workshops, roundtables, and networking opportunities.

    What: SAP Doctoral and Early Career Program (0.5 day)

    Where: Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management 2021

    When: Scheduled to be on Friday, July 30, 2021 (approx. 5 hours)

    Who: Doctoral students, post-docs and junior faculty

    The program will include three carefully chosen Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) to enhance participants' SAP-related knowledge and provide opportunities for engaging similar minds. Additionally, it will include private mentor-mentee feedback sessions with assigned mentors, creating an invaluable networking opportunity for junior scholars. In this way, the day provides multiple opportunities both for networking and for professional development despite being virtual.

    Please note that an application to the program requires a commitment to participate in all of the scheduled activities.
