Call for Proposals To Host

The Africa Academy of Management 2021 Africa Faculty Development Workshop

The Africa Academy of Management (AFAM) is seeking proposals to host its Africa Faculty Development Workshop (AFDW) to be held in mid-2021 (May-June). The 2021 workshop is a continuation of the Africa Faculty Development Workshops that were first held in conjunction with the Academy of Management (AOM) at GIMPA in Accra, Ghana, in 2011 and the University of Rwanda in Kigali in 2012. Subsequent workshops have been held at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Business School, Kumasi, Ghana, and most recently at the American University in Cairo (Egypt).

The Africa Faculty Development Workshop is a program aimed at promoting excellent PhD and new faculty research, assisting with the advancement of research scholarship, and helping to develop the next generation of Africa’s academic leaders. The workshop invites (on a competitive basis) 15-25 scholars from across the African continent to engage in an intensive week-long workshop to improve upon the theory, methodology, and presentation of their research projects. Facilitators for the workshop are senior scholars from around the globe with expertise in various management fields. The workshop includes interactive paper development sessions, presentations and networking opportunities. One of the goals of the workshop is to improve the publication potential of African scholarship into well regarded academic journals. The workshop is open to participation by junior faculty members and advanced PhD students whose research focuses on organizational and management issues in business, government, and civil society in Africa.
