    Why, What, and When

    Attending the Junior Faculty Consortium is  a way for you to develop a supportive community of scholars. We particularly welcome applications from junior faculty who have not attended this consortium before and those who will attend WAM for the first time.

    The consortium will include a mix of panels, presentations, and small group discussions about research, publishing, teaching, and other career-related issues. It will provide opportunities to network with scholars and make valuable connections. Come and meet Journal of Management Inquiry's (JMI) Scholars Linda Smirch and Marta Calas from the University of Massachusetts and Nancy Harding from the University of Bath. Attendees also receive feedback on a research proposal or developmental paper of their choice.

    The Junior Faculty Consortium begins at 8:00 am on Thursday, March 19th and runs until the afternoon's opening session.
