March 2021 Humanistic Management PhD Network Seminar

March Humanistic Management PhD Seminar

Monday, March 15 from 12pm – 1pm Eastern.

Welcome to IHMA’s Humanistic Management PhD Network. We support PhDs with mentoring, social support and research opportunities. We also have possibilities to connect researchers for publication work, and data gathering sites in companies and organizations connected to IHMA.

In our monthly gatherings the Humanistic Management Ph.D. network is featuring the work of selected Ph.D. students in the field to :

1) highlight their research topic

2) ask specific questions regarding their work for feedback

3) share and discuss concerns of members of the group via Zoom

Please join us on March 15, 2021 as Celeste Diaz Ferraro from Penn State University presents her work on how meaning-creation and flows of power shaped the emergence of genomic medicine as a field. The theoretical story is about how institutional infrastructure gets built, which then ultimately shapes how the fields we function within are governed. Celeste will discuss her inductive analysis as well as ways to “humanize” this topic.

Hosted by: David Wasieleski, Erica Steckler, Michael Pirson, and PJ Dillon.

All interested students and scholars are welcome!


The HM PhD Network is sponsored by the Albert P. Viragh Institute for Ethics in Business at Duquesne University.

This monthly gathering is hosted by the International Humanistic Management Association in collaboration with the Academy of Management MSR Interest Group and Social Issues in Management (SIM) Division.
