 The Strategic Management Division will once again sponsor a Mid-Career Consortium for the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management. Following the Academy's decision to hold the meetings virtually, the Consortium will also be organized virtually. The Mid-Career Consortium is for STR faculty members who are tenured on or before August 2020 and have at least five years of academic experience. The consortium is designed to be an interactive session where mid-career faculty members will interact with senior faculty in a set of small group discussions on the opportunities and challenges scholars face as they transition from junior to senior scholars. The objective is to facilitate networking and discussion around the unique professional challenges, problems and opportunities facing STR faculty moving into their "Associate Professor Years."

At the Mid-Career Consortium in the 2021 AOM Virtual Annual Meeting, participants will interact with a panel of senior faculty members including Craig Crossland (University of Notre Dame), Jackson Nickerson (Washington University), Phanish Puranam (INSEAD), Jeffrey J. Reuer (University of Colorado), and Margarethe Wiersema (University of California, Irvine). The panelists and participants will discuss a range of issues in small groups, including topics such as managing competing demands, changing your outlook/emphasis post tenure, launching a new research stream or reorienting your research focus, when to think about changing schools, supervising Ph.D. students, and taking on leadership roles.

The 2021 STR Consortium will be co-chaired by Daphne Yiu (University of Oklahoma) and Srikanth Paruchuri (Texas A&M University).  Pre-registration will be opened from June 1, 2021 to July 1, 2021 (US Eastern Time), please email Daphne Yiu (dyiu@ou.edu) and Srikanth Paruchuri (paruchuri@tamu.edu).
