How is the Senior Faculty Consortium structured?
The consortium will run two parallel tracks to accommodate the time differences in the online annual meeting. One track will take place from 08:30 to 12:30 UTC to accommodate participants in Africa/Europe, and Asia/Pacific. Another will happen from 16:30 to 20:30 UTC and is designed for participants in the Americas, and Africa/Europe. Participants will select the track that best suits their time zone.

The consortium is organized as four sequential panel sessions lasting 55 minutes with a 5-minute break between them. In each session, the first 35 minutes are devoted to a panel discussion in which panelists will provide their thoughts on the topic, followed by a Q&A period. In the following 20 minutes, each panelist will move into a breakout room with participants to have a conversation on the ideas presented.
The panel sessions will cover the following four topics:
- Research: Keeping research active; navigating research and publishing with multi-person teams of varying ranks/cultures/geographies; changing research topics; publishing non-academic journals and books.
- Impact: having a societal impact; turning research into practice; joining boards; becoming involved in national and international public policy networks (e.g., UNCTAD, OECD, UN 2030 SDGs); finding opportunities for service in local communities.
- Advancement: identifying insider/outsider issues facing senior women/minority/cross-culture faculty; breaking barriers; mentoring and paving the way.
- Career: making major career changes; moving into university leadership; changing institutions and visiting appointments; transitioning into retirement and making a difference post-retirement.
