AOM is connecting members of the global management and organization community with one another and with external audiences through an unparalleled portfolio of engagement opportunities that transcend technological and geographic boundaries.
What does that mean for our worldwide membership?
Our Annual Meeting is the world's largest forum devoted to management scholarship and education. Annual Meeting innovation often has grass-roots beginnings. Each year, through conversations, feedback, and outreach, a host of new and innovative ideas from attendees, participants, volunteers, leaders, and staff are put forward.
To enable scholars with the best practical input on globally relevant management teaching, AOM continues to offer the Teaching and Learning Conference at the Annual Meeting.

Specialized Conference: Bled, Slovenia
Responsible Leadership in Rising Economies
23-25 October 2019
The AOM Specialized Conference on Responsible Leadership in Rising Economies was hosted by the IEDC-Bled School of Management; this engaging event was developed in collaboration with five AOM Divisions & Interest Groups: Management Education and Development Division (MED), Organizational Behavior Division (OB), Organizations and the Natural Environment Division (ONE), Social Issues in Management Division (SIM), and Strategic Management Division (STR).
This important specialized conference called on participants to explore what “responsible leadership” means in the context of a rapidly changing world, particularly in rising and transforming economies. Conference attendees considered how the scholarly management community, in collaboration with businesses, policy makers, NGOs, media, and other stakeholders interested in the new role of business in society, could best support the development of responsible management and sustainable innovation. The conference program provided a dynamic blend of paper sessions, symposia, professional development workshops, a doctoral consortium, and journal paper development workshops from Academy of Management Annals (AMA), Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD), Academy of Management Learning & Education (AMLE), Academy of Management Journal (AMJ), Academy of Management Perspectives (AMP), and Academy of Management Review (AMR). The conference also featured keynote presentations and a moderated debate featuring participants from industry, government, and academia, as well as the most recent former president of Slovenia.
Abstracts of all papers and symposia presented at AOM Specialized Conferences are included in the Academy of Management Global Proceedings.
