59th ANNUAL MEETINGMay 17 – 20, 2022 Portland, MaineThe Westin Harborviewwww.eaom.orgResilience and Reinvention: Moving ForwardSUBMISSIONS ACCEPTED TILL JANUARY 15, 2022“Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.”Søren KierkegaardRacial injustice, a global pandemic, and political unrest. These are just a few of the myriad ofworld-wide events that have challenged individuals, businesses, and organizations during thepast few years. They have led to what have been often dramatic changes coupled with financialpressures in our lives and our workplaces. Many individuals have had to work remotely whilejuggling family responsibilities. Many organizations had had to change how work is performedwhile they attempted to fulfill their missions and keep their staff safe. Entire industries such ashospitality and entertainment were shut down for extended periods, and academia was forced tolook in the mirror and ask itself some hard questions. During the past few years, we have beentested in ways we never imagined. Yet we persisted, and we continue to persist. We have beenresilient, and we look forward to the future, but do so with the realization that things havechanged. So, let us reflect on the past as we consider the future and ask ourselves: What have welearned from the past few years? How will we as individuals and organizations use this newknowledge? What specifically can leaders do to help us move forward? How can we adapt as therate of change keeps increasing? What role will technology play in this ever-changing landscape?What do businesses need from us as researchers? What does this mean for how and what weteach? What new skills should we be imparting on our students? Join us in Portland, Maine forthe 59th Annual Meeting of the Eastern Academy of Management as we explore these questionsand many others that ground our research, teaching and learning.
