Call for Participants: AOM Symposium: Changing Landscapes: Gender Inequality and Remediation in Labor Markets and Organizations

Greetings! We invite you to attend our Academy of Management Symposium titled, “Changing Landscapes: Gender Inequality and Remediation in Labor Markets and Organizations.” The session is a live, synchronous, and virtual session taking place on July 31 2021 from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. EST (New York Time) (UTC-4). We are pleased that this symposium was a finalist for “Best Symposium” for the CAR Division for AOM.

Symposium Overview

Although there has been progress in understanding some aspects of gender inequality, the hiring process and its contributions to gender inequality in labor markets and organizations remains unclear, leaving knowledge of the potential solutions for gender inequality incomplete (Petersen and Saporta, 2004). This symposium brings together four papers that deepen our understanding of inequality by focusing on changes in labor markets and organizations. A paper by Burbano, Padilla, and Meier examines an important but overlooked job characteristic—gendered differences in preferences for meaning at work —that may in part explain occupational segregation by gender—and are more pronounced in national contexts with greater levels of education and economic development. In another paper, Sterling, Gilmartin, and Sheppard suggest that informing employer’s beliefs about men’s and women’s abilities—instead of improving women’s self-beliefs about abilities—could be the pathway by which the gender pay gap lessens. Wang examines how laws in the U.S. (i.e. salary history bans) that address a specific juncture in the wage-setting process—initial salary offers prior to the negotiation stage—can reduce historic inequalities by disrupting path dependencies in wages. And finally, a paper by Zhang investigates how technological change such as e-commerce adoption by retail companies, may improve racial and gender equality in hiring and promotions.

Member Publication: Pharmacists Should Treat Patients Who Have Opioid Use Disorders, Not Police Them

Please check out the recent publication by OOW member Elizabeth Chiarello:

Chiarello, Elizabeth. 2021. “Pharmacists Should Treat Patients Who Have Opioid Use Disorders, Not Police Them.” Journal of the American Pharmacists Association. Online First.

Abstract

Pharmacists are caught in the throes of a relentless overdose crisis that has already claimed half a million lives and threatens to claim thousands more. The addiction treatment system is fragmented and inadequate to meet demand. Few physicians provide medications for opioid use disorder (MOUDs), the most effective form of evidence-based treatment, and insufficient treatment options leave patients vulnerable to overdose.

Pharmacists routinely interact with patients who have OUD but lack ways to treat them. The primary tools that pharmacists have received to curb the crisis are prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs), big data surveillance technologies that they can use to track patients’ medication acquisition patterns. Pharmacists like PDMPs because they help them make decisions efficiently. However, PDMPs are enforcement technologies, not health care tools; therefore, pharmacists typically use PDMPs to police patients instead of treating them. Policing patients not only fails to help combat overdose, but can also exacerbate harm.

Informed by a decade’s worth of interviews with pharmacists before and after PDMP implementation, I argue that pharmacists should be better equipped to help patients with OUD. Specifically, clinical and community pharmacists should mobilize to provide MOUDs through collaborative practice agreements with physicians. Studies show that collaborative practice models are effective at reducing the risk of overdose and saving money and physicians’ time. And pharmacists have the clinical competencies necessary to provide MOUDs for patients. Pharmacists must overcome legal, economic, and interprofessional barriers to do so, but giving pharmacists the tools to treat patients will affirm their professional commitment to caring for patients and saving lives.

Call for Participants: AOM Professional Development Workshop Filling the Void: Researching Our Latinx Experience

Dear OOW friends,   

You are invited to participate in the AOM PDW Filling the Void: Researching Our Latinx Experience (session 1190). 

Managerial research that addresses the complex and contextual nature of the Latinx workforce in the USA is almost non-existent. Yet, Latinx-identified people compose the largest minority group in the USA. This PDW will engage Latinx and allies in conversation to voice our concerns, begin a discussion, and set in motion a research agenda that acknowledges and accurately depicts the Latinx experience within contemporary organizations.  

Tuesday August 3rd, 2021, 7:30 am – 9:00 pm (PDT)  

The PDW will be conducted as a live session. 

We look forward to seeing you on August 3rd
