Networking with Academy of Management
Academy of Management (AOM) members connect with colleagues around the globe through AOM’s online networks and communities, as well as at the Annual Meeting—the world’s largest gathering of management and organization scholars.
Networking through AOM offers new opportunities to share your research, meet peers, and discuss everything from the latest theories, to the best teaching practices, to top management and organization issues of the day.
Your membership benefits multiply when you join two or more Divisions and Interest groups (DIGs) representing 26 scholarly disciplines.
Completing and updating your AOM profile ensures that you get the most from your AOM experience.
- Sign in to your AOM member profile to update your email address, add a bio and picture, and complete your professional profile to raise your visibility. Including your social media accounts to your social profile helps other members connect with you.
- Join a Connect@AOM discussion by starting a new thread or replying to someone else’s comment. Make a blog post to start a conversation. Browse your community libraries and upload documents that your peers may find useful.
Divisions and Interest Groups
Divisions and Interest Groups (DIGs) reflect a broad range of member interests within 26 management disciplines. By joining a DIG, you can network with colleagues with similar scholarly and professional interests. Each DIG offers a range of services, including educational sessions, social events at the Annual Meeting, and DIG websites and Connect@AOM communities for sharing professional development opportunities, recognition programs, and division updates.
With AOM members living all around the world, connecting with others online is essential. Connect@AOM offers members and non-members a platform with more than 50 communities to connect through discussion boards, a library of shared documents, and a calendar of events to become involved in conversation and collaboration with colleagues.
Connecting in Person at AOM Events
Networking at events is a crucial part of growing your connections. AOM holds multiple events each year around the world, ranging from our Specialized Conferences to our Annual Meeting. Through connecting with others at AOM events, you will learn about the latest research, meet others inside and outside of your management discipline, and expand your network, knowledge, and skills.
As an AOM volunteer, you are invited to create the collective future of the organization by joining in the planning, direction and decision making of AOM. Volunteering connects you with others who have similar interests, which serves to expand your network.
Connect with AOM and those interested in management to expand your network and stay informed about news and events through our social media pages on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, and YouTube.
Affiliated and Associated Societies
AOM builds cooperative relationships and networks with other societies committed to advancing the scholarship and practice of management. Affiliated and Associated Societies augment and complement the activities of AOM. Both operate autonomously and provides you the opportunity to interact with colleagues who share commonality of culture, language, or geographic location.
