Putting Workers’ (And Our Own) Untold Stories Front and Center

For this year’s gathering, we lean into the AOM theme of putting the worker front and center to consider how we as POS scholars can put the untold stories of ourselves and others into research and practice. More specifically, the goal of this year’s gathering is to practice how to cultivate and share untold stories that have historically been overlooked or viewed as taboo within the Academy, be they stories of marginalized or overlooked research populations, our own stories as we conduct research that challenges our minds or spirits, personal stories about navigating the Academy, and more. We will engage in interactive activities that will facilitate the surfacing and sharing of these stories, in order to inform more positive, holistic, and connected scholarship that can also be generative for teaching and community outreach. In doing so, this session aims to raise awareness about narratives that may be forgotten or buried under more ‘mainstream’ narratives and topics that exist within the literature. Ultimately, we aim to unlock positive resources within our community that may otherwise remain out of sight, allowing us to use those resources to encourage ourselves and others to put these important stories at the heart of the work we do.
