Emerging Scholars Research Consortium & Leadership Research Mentoring Workshop

Submission Deadline: 27 June 2024, 11:59 PM EDT; Notifications will be emailed in July.

The Emerging Scholars Research Consortium and Leadership Research Mentoring Workshop create unique mentoring opportunities at the conference for graduate students and early-career faculty to receive feedback, advice, and fresh perspectives on their research from more seasoned senior scholars in the field. 

Both initiative are part of the ILA’s Leadership Scholarship Member Community‘s mission to develop the quality of global leadership scholarship.

About the Emerging Scholar Research Consortium (ESRC)

Target Audience: Research Masters and Doctoral students at any stage of their program, and Faculty/Instructors/Assistant Professors (less than 3 years).

The ESRC matches participants with more senior International Leadership Association members to provide intellectual exchange and mentorship opportunities. Participants give poster presentations at a special forum during the annual conference. Breakout conversations with an assigned mentor follow the presentations. In addition, participants may be invited to publicly present their posters during the conference’s hosted poster session.

About the Leadership Research Mentoring Workshop

Target Audience: Assistant / Associate Professors, and advanced Doctoral students.

This workshop provides junior faculty and students the opportunity to discuss their leadership research in an informal and collegial setting with prominent leadership scholars. Based on their proposed research theory and methods, the junior scholars will be matched with more senior scholars. During the session, the senior scholars will discuss research proposals providing insights and suggestions for future research. As part of the workshop, you need to agree to your paper being discussed in a small group with other participants and be willing and able to provide a short (5-minute maximum) overview of your paper to others in the discussion group.
