Welcome to IHMA’s Humanistic Management PhD Network. The PhD Network is a virtual community to support PhD students interested in humanistic perspectives in management scholarship through mentoring, social support and research opportunities. The network offers students possibilities to connect with researchers for publication work, as well as with IHMA-connected companies and organizations for data gathering.
The network currently offers two monthly opportunities for students to connect:
- A monthly PhD Network research & mentoring meeting takes place the 1st Monday of each month at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time (UTC-5) via the Zoom web-conference platform. During each meeting, one student will present their current research and receive developmental feedback from senior scholars and other participants. Then the entire group will discuss a topic related to career development or the PhD journey. All are welcome to join these monthly calls; sign up to participate each month via the IHMA events page at http://humanisticmanagement.international/activities/events
- A monthly Foundations in Humanistic Management Reading Group takes place the 2nd Monday of each month at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time (UTC-5) via the Zoom web-conference platform. This series supports new scholars intellectually, broadening awareness of existing theory, and framing opportunities for future research. Each month we consider a small number of significant contemporary and classic readings, and discuss in a virtual environment to share perspectives on incorporating humanistic ideas such as dignity and well-being into management scholarship and practice. Preparation is encouraged, but not required, and scholars of all levels and interests are welcome. We especially encourage participants to suggest future reading topics. Recent participant suggestions have included Claus Dierksmeier on virtue ethics in business, Jonathan Haidt on moral foundations theory, and scholarship on the transformation of business schools. All are welcome to join these monthly calls; sign up to participate each month via the IHMA events page at http://humanisticmanagement.international/activities/events
