IAMCR is initiating the Presidential PhD Research Webinars to open up channels for greater engagement and participation, keep IAMCR's vibrant and collegial spirit, foster membership engagement outside of the main conference times, and provide more visibility for the research that early-stage scholars do.
IAMCR has organised six webinars since the launch of its Webinar Series in March 2021. In this article, Dr. Andrea Medrado, IAMCR vice president and coordinator of the IAMCR webinar series, talks about the experience of organising the webinars and the importance of opening channels for engagement and participation in addition to the association’s annual conference.
