We aim to be a platform where DIO scholars can easily find references, discuss new research opportunities, and understand where the field is going as a whole.

Distances in Organizations

Our topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Spatial distances: distributed teams, telework, mobile work.
  • Temporal distances: goal setting, temporal horizons, change.
  • Social distances: power, diversity, social networks.
  • Construal levels: conceptualization, social consequences, measurement.
  • Initiatives


  • Annual Workshops: We held our first workshop, DIO Montréal 2018, at McGill University in May 2018. Our next workshop is scheduled for 2019.
  • Reference Database: We aim to catalog all publications relevant to DIO research in a continuously-updated database, with the goal of facilitating access to research findings and research methods.
  • Newsletter: We will send regular newsletter to inform our network of recently published papers and future events. Join our newsletter to stay in touch.
