Gender and Diversity in Organizations (GDO) Celebration of Success

At GDO we have a suite of awards recognising the extraordinary work of our members, and we take great pleasure in awarding these at our Celebration of Success, just prior to the famous GDO Social Extravaganza on the Monday evening of the AoM conference. Keep this in mind for your scheduling for 2020, as it is a highlight of the conference.

Thanks to the goodwill and diligence of our volunteer members who make up the committees for our awards each year, chaired ably by our GDO Executive Committee members and Representatives at large, we are confident our award winners reflect the values of the GDO and we feel proud to showcase their work.  

For this year’s award winning papers at the conference, congratulations to:
