Representative-at-Large - Alison M. Konrad, Western University (Canada)


Alison M. Konrad, Ph.D.  I am a Professor of Organizational Behavior and holder of the Corus Entertainment Chair in Women in Management at the Ivey Business School, Western University in Ontario, CANADA.  My research interests focus upon making organizations more diverse and inclusive to reflect the stakeholder communities that they serve.  I have published over 50 scholarly articles in journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, the Academy of Management Learning & Education, Administrative Science Quarterly, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion, Human Resource Management, Organization Management Journal, Psychological Bulletin, and the Strategic Management Journal.  I was Program Chair for the Women in Management Division in 1995 and worked to change the name to Gender and Diversity in Organizations as Chair and Past Chair of the Division.  I was VP of Program for the Eastern Academy of Management in 1996, served as President in 1998 and became an EAM Fellow in 2004.  I have served on many Editorial Boards and was Editor of Group & Organization Management from 2003 to 2007.  I am convinced that our editorial processes strive for fairness and excellence and have progressed substantially since the early 1990s.  However, we face the ongoing challenges of privileging functionalist work, quantitative work, and North American-centric work in our system of knowledge creation.  As a Representative at Large on the AOM Board of Governors, I will work to develop policies for dealing with both ongoing and emerging issues in our publication processes in ways that better serve all sectors of the AOM membership.
