2020 Cape Town SE Seminar - Information and Application Form

Submitted by AFAM on Fri, 02/07/2020 - 1:15am

We are inviting doctoral students (and interested faculty) to a week-long, intensive social entrepreneurship doctoral seminar. Social entrepreneurship is a vitally important arena of scholarly research and teaching. Doctoral level training is needed to equip researchers in the core concepts and empirical findings of this emerging domain. This seminar involves two of the field’s leading scholars as co-teachers and provides an in-depth survey of recent social entrepreneurship scholarship and its theoretical background. It has been taught at different universities in the United States, including Harvard, and will now be offered for the first time in South Africa. More information about the seminar, in general, is available at https://sedocseminar.org

CALL FOR PAPERS - The Tribe and Organizations in Africa

Submitted by AFAM on Fri, 11/08/2019 - 12:18am

As a follow-up to the Professional Development Workshop (PDW) on Tribal Identity and the Challenge of Building Inclusive Organizations in Africa, held at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Boston, we decided to organize a special issue to explore in-depth the topic of tribal identity, diversity, and inclusion in African organizations. Since the beginning of the 21st century, there has been increased interest of management scholars and practitioners in Africa as indicated by conferences, symposia, and academic publications (Nkomo, Zoogah, & Acquaah, 2015; Walsh, 2011, 2015; Zoogah, Peng, & Woldu, 2015). One of the key motivations is to understand the continent which is “marked by fast growth, limited growth, or no growth at all, Africa’s business, government, and civil sectors all need world-class management.”
