The Carolyn Dexter Award is an all-Academy award given to the paper that best meets the objective of internationalizing the Academy of Management. This serves the mission of the Academy and the charge of the International Theme Committee, which sponsors this Award. Papers were evaluated by award committee members Adela J. McMurray(Chair), Iris Berdrow, Rosa Nelly Trevinyo-Rodríguez, Hung-Bin Ding, Jacob Eisenberg, Benson Honig, and Claire A. Simmers.
Submissions were reviewed with careful attention to ensure that the theme and content of the paper reflected an awareness of business and management outside domestic boundaries. Papers are considered for the Carolyn Dexter Award if they offer new insights, are rich in observation, and employ creative methodologies. Submissions are welcomed of topics or methods that are not in the U.S. mainstream, but are important in other countries' research traditions and are of excellent quality in accord with the criteria of these traditions.
