    Plenary for Each Track from 12 to 1:30 P.M.

    The Midwest Academy of Management is open to all management disciplines and some of our traditional track topics have included: Leadership, Ethics, Supply Chain, Health Care, Hospitality, and Information Systems. Due to the virtual nature of this year's conference, we have compressed the tracks.

    Of specific interest this year, we are asking you to consider how your new ways of working have challenged you, your students, and our profession to be more flexible, adaptable, and resilient. Additionally, papers could propose: New thinking about ways of working; tactical, practical and timely solutions in specific aspects of our work - teaching, research and service. Ideas for adapting traditional on campus activities in online or virtual settings and being adaptable as we pivot our teaching, research, and service. The theme track Scholarship in an Extraordinary Future would be an excellent outlet for these generative submissions.

    We welcome collaborative paper sessions, professional development workshops, symposiums and other sessions related to management topics. Submit your research papers, symposia proposals, professional development workshop proposals, short papers, and other creative works. Acceptance decisions will be made around September 1, 2020.
