Dear STR members,
As you prepare for the Chicago conference, the online program will give you access to the 27 PDWs (plus 41 co-sponsored PDWs), 100 paper and discussion paper sessions, and 73 symposia of the STR division. Here is a reminder and update of some of the plenary events for our division.
Due to circumstances outside the control of all involved, the Distinguished Scholar session in honor of Michael Porter, initially scheduled for Saturday evening, has been cancelled. However, there will be plenty of opportunities to celebrate the best of our field! These include:
- The Irwin Award Ceremony honoring Sharon Oster’s contributions to strategy education and more (Sunday, 6:00-8:00p.m., Swissôtel Vevey 1&2)
- The STR Plenary featuring Dan Levinthal, Connie Helfat, Myles Shaver, and Michael Tushman on “Ensuring a future for strategic management research: Important questions and credible answers” (Monday, 11:30a.m.-1:00p.m., Swissôtel Zurich D)
- The STR Dissertation Award session where finalists for the Wiley-Blackwell Outstanding Dissertation Award will present their ideas (Monday, 1:15-2:45p.m., Swissôtel Alpine II)
- The STR Business Meeting where you can learn about the latest developments with the STR division and discover who has won paper and dissertation awards (Monday, 6:30-7:30p.m., Swissôtel Zurich D); followed by the STR Division Social (7:30-9:00p.m., Swissôtel Vevey 1-4)
Finally, look for a separate announcement about two offsite events that the STR Division is organizing for its members on Sunday Aug 12. Hint: They will feature the best of Chicago’s art and architecture!
We look forward to seeing you at these and other division events in Chicago!
The STR Division Officers
