Doctoral students are often faced with multiple unfamiliar challenges. The PhD process can be demanding and overwhelming and very often students are expected to navigate these challenging issues themselves. Building a support network and effective strategies to manage this demanding process can be critical to these students’ future academic and career success. This year’s “CAR Doctoral Consortium” will provide a forum for early to mid- stage doctoral students to meet, connect, and learn from each other informally, from guest speakers, and from a panel of distinguished career scholars on a number of useful and relevant topics. Our aim is to bring together scholars from a broad range of cultures and institutions that mirror the diversity of the CAR membership. Our speakers are a group of distinguished senior as well as junior international faculty. They will share insights on the following six topics: (1) Low hanging fruit: Making the most of AOM Annual Meetings; (2) Surviving: Accessing and leveraging formal and informal resources during your doctoral program; (3) Thriving: Recruiting mentors and collaborators for your network; (4) Make it happen: Effectively navigating the dissertation process; (5) Head of the class: Preparing for your first course assignment and teaching role; (6) Balancing act: How to juggle demands of academic life during your doctoral program and beyond. Moreover, the PDW will conclude with a 1 hour panel discussion with highly published career scholars along this year’s AOM theme of “improving lives”.
