2022 14th Annual Midyear Meeting of the Public Interest Section held jointly with the Gender Issues and Worklife Balance Section

This conference will be conducted virtually Friday, May 20, 2022, and include a panel session, concurrent research paper sessions, and networking opportunities. The virtual format is intended to facilitate conversations with international scholars and those who may continue to be impacted by COVID restrictions. Please watch for our preliminary program in mid-April.

MEETING FOCUS: The PI/GIWB Sections view accounting as a social activity with important consequences for organizations, accounting practitioners, educators, and the public at large. This conference seeks to promote conversation between scholars who are using a diverse set of research methods to address gender, work-life balance, diversity, and public interest issues broadly construed. We welcome both mature and emerging paradigms, especially those that challenge dominant representations of accounting.
