The PACIS Junior Faculty Consortium aims to orientate junior IS faculty in, but not limited to, the Pacific-Asia Region (AIS Region 3) to advance their career in the region and beyond. The Consortium is designed to prepare junior faculty for the road ahead to leverage opportunities, avoid pitfalls, plan for their desired career path, and understand the expectations of the IS field and community as well as the key stakeholders, including the local communities, the university management, and the academic ecosystem.
At the Consortium, a group of senior IS scholars from universities around the world will serve as mentors to Consortium participants. The Consortium includes panel discussions and group interactions, covering diverse topics (e.g., career planning, meeting tenure criteria, satisfying publication requirements, networking opportunities and strategies, navigating work-family balance, etc.). In the pandemic and post-pandemic times, the issues of how your career may be affected and what adjustments are needed are also relevant topics for discussion.
