• ODC Doctoral Consortium 2018

    August 11th, 2018

    Organizers: Danielle Zandee, Nyenrode Business University and Katerina Gonzalez, City University of New York

    We are really pleased to be able to invite doctoral students involved in change-related research to our 2018 Doctoral Consortium. With great scholars to provide you with feedback on your work and career advice, excellent networking opportunities, and a vibrant, welcoming atmosphere, what’s not to like?

    The 2018 ODC Doctoral Consortium will be held on Saturday, August 11th, as part of the pre- conference program at the Academy of Management meetings in Chicago, Illinois.

    This Doctoral Student Consortium is for doctoral students interested in studying issues associated with any aspect of organizational change. We welcome and encourage students at all stages of their dissertation – those who are well advanced as well as those who are at an early stage of their dissertation.

    The consortium will provide opportunities for structured discussion and informal interaction between doctoral students and faculty concerning research, publishing, and early career issues. In small group coaching sessions, participants will have the opportunity to present and discuss their dissertation research with faculty members who will give feedback and help further advance participants’ work toward successful completion, publishable results, and smooth transitions into their academic careers. This is a great opportunity to meet prominent scholars in the field from around the world and to network with peers.

    Places are limited and applications to participate in the consortium will be assessed on a first come, first served basis - so you are advised to apply early. To apply, please send an email with the following three documents attached to Danielle Zandee ( by May 15, 2018.

    • A recommendation letter from your dean, department chair, or major advisor/supervisor that verifies your (a) status/progress and (b) year in your school’s doctoral program.
    • A one-page bio summarizing your contact information, research and teaching interests, and publications.
    • A 3-5 page (typed and double-spaced) summary of your dissertation project, including the research question, rationale, any hypotheses/propositions, proposed methods, and any results (if applicable).
    Note: If accepted for the consortium, your one-page bio and summary of your dissertation project will be distributed among consortium faculty and participants in advance of the August session.
