This PDW proposes a rare discussion on navigating the professional complexities that come with doing diversity research and being a diversity scholar, particularly in business schools. It offers a rare opportunity to get behind-the-scenes insights into the professional journeys and career histories of leading diversity scholars in management research today. It will facilitate dialogue on practical realities to begin, sustain, and advance a career as a diversity academic. Participants have a chance for collective reflection about the obstacles and the opportunities that confront their 'doing' of diversity scholarship and their 'being' as a diversity scholar. The PDW will also advance consideration on how business schools can better support diversity academics in more productive and meaningful ways beyond tokenistic attention. We will discuss the various ways in which our departments' political climate affects our membership, citizenship, and career advancement and how we can better engage to improve it. The PDW will be particularly useful for advanced doctoral students and early career researchers as they can witness a wide spectrum of possible career paths through the journeys of several role models who blazed the trail to become accomplished scholars in the field.
