LGBTQ+ & Organizations
The interest of management scholars in LBGBTQ+ themes has increased over time. In particular, research has highlighted the relevance of discussing these themes within organization studies, exploring how more inclusive workplaces and leadership styles can be enhanced. In addition, marketing research has focused on the need to focus on LBGTQ+ themes when exploring consumers’ needs and behaviors. On the one side, there is increased awareness of the need to discuss these topics in academic research, recognizing their relevance for the society. On the other side, there are constant discussions on the interrelations, differences, and similarities across different lines of research. In this two-day virtual conference, several esteemed scholars will lead conversation on LGBTQ+ themes across organization studies and marketing, through eight paper presentations and one keynote speech. In the second day, in the concluding Panel, we will also involve representatives from the industry, with whom we will discuss how to leverage the bridge between academia and industry, aimed to find fruitful ways to advance the focus on LGBTQ+ themes within organizations. Overall, we will stimulate discussion around the following questions: What is the current research landscape around LGBTQ+ themes and what are the areas that require deeper attention? What are promising areas of inquiry? How can overlaps and differences across topics be leveraged to advance the extant literature and enhance relevance for society? This two-day conference is intended to discuss the state-of-the-science, provide collective insights from the intersection of different research fields, and offer future research opportunities with high societal relevance.
