    The Practice Theme Committee (PTC) and the International Theme Committee (ITC) of the
    Academy of Management invite nominations, including self-nominations, for the International
    Impactful Collaboration Award. 

    This competitive award seeks to recognize and to celebrate international collaborations between academics 
    and external stakeholders that have achieved demonstrable, external impact. The award advances the aims of 
    both all-Academy committees:
    The PTC aims to identify exemplar initiatives that bridge theory and practice, and to create 
    platforms for ongoing engagement with practitioners for relevant, applicable knowledge; the ITC
    aims to improve AOM members' understandings of internationalization of business, trade and
    other organizational transactions, and to encourage exposure for organizational scholarship
    conducted outside the United States of America.

    The award will be given to an impactful research collaboration (e.g., journal articles, books,
    consulting reports, conferences, major research grants, regulatory change) done over the previous

    involving consultants, managers, policymakers, NGOs, labor, or society at large) as full partners.

    impact are identified in the 2017 AOM report Measuring and Achieving Scholarly Impact
    (Tables 3 and 4).
