The IHMA awards honor contributions that are conceptually rigorous, novel, and/or empirically strong. For the scholarly award we value novel conceptual contributions that help build organizing and management theory. For our practice award we recognize impactful writings that can influence organizing and management practice. For our policy award, we recognize work that builds on the foundational ideas of dignity protection and well-being promotion and develops propositions for policy and eco-system design. Our PhD related awards and recognition classify as scholarly contributions.
