    Aim: As in organizational life, there are numerous barriers that detriment female scholars in academia generally and in the field of organizational sciences, specifically. Indeed, akin to the 'glass ceiling' phenomenon within organizations, women in academia suffer from similar gender inequities (e.g., field-level structural barriers, lack of organizational support, social support concerns, and limited allyship). As such, the aim of the proposed professional development workshop (PDW) is to shed light on the challenges that female scholars face in our field and generate ideas and solutions for changes that can help women overcome some of these barriers. To do so, this session invites leading scholars to apply insights from their own, and others', research and knowledge on gender and organizational bias to the field of management. The panelist presentations will be followed by breakout sessions where participants are able to have open conversations with the panelists and engage in a discussion of possible solutions to the barriers women scholars face. Combined, this PDW seeks to broaden our understanding of women's experiences in the Academy and find solutions to better meet the needs of female scholars and facilitate their success in the field.

    Our panelists include:

    Dr. Ruth Aguilera, Northeastern University

    Dr. Rachel Arnett, University of Pennsylvania

    Dr. Ellen Kossek, Purdue University

    Dr. Marie Mitchell, University of Georgia

    Dr. Lisa Nishii, Cornell University
