    Dear MSOM Society Members:

    The MSOM DEI Committee (Anupam Agrawal, So Yeon Chun, Jorge Mejia, Chris Parker, Siddharth Singh, and Terry Taylor) is hosting a panel discussion on parental leave policies on Tuesday October 26 Pacific time 7:45 am – 9:00 am.  This is a continuation of the DEI session hosted at the MSOM Conference this past June.   The panelists include:

    • Thunyarat (Bam) Amornpetchkul, NIDA Business School, Thailand
    • Javiera Barrera, University Adolfo Ibáñez, Chile
    • Maria Besiou, Kühne Logistics University, Germany
    • Fikri Karaesman, Koc University, Turkey
    • Govind Kumawat, IIM Udaipur, India
    Zoom link and calendar event are below.


    All three MSOM events---DEI Session, Business Meeting (Monday 6:30 am PDT), and Reception (Monday 6:15 pm PDT) are accessible from:

    The following Zoom links are already embedded in the above calendar events.


    MSOM Reception (Oct 25, 6:15 pm PDT): We have 34 people responded to attend in person, half faculty and half students (perfect mix).  We think more will show up after we send reminders.  For everyone's safety, only individually packaged food and drinks will be served.  We will take pictures of all the finalists and awardees who can be at the reception.  Because none of the current MSOM officers will attend in person, we need a camera person and a faculty who can be the "award giver" in the picture.  If any faculty attending in person is willing to help, please email, or I will award you the positions.


    Best regards,

    MSOM Officers: Feryal Erhun, Burak Kazaz, Tim Kraft, and Owen Wu
