Call for Papers & Presentations

By Catherine Mattice, MA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

13th International Association on Workplace Bullying and Harassment Conference

San Diego, California, USA | 20–24 September 2022

Conference Theme: Re-imagining Ways to Research and Address Workplace Bullying and Harassment Across the Globe

Several decades of research devoted to the study of workplace bullying and harassment have created deeper awareness and understanding of these phenomena. Despite these great strides, there is still more work that remains to be done. The aim of this conference is to explore innovative ways to research and address workplace bullying and harassment. Bullying persists despite the collective efforts of researchers and practitioners to remediate it. This conference is designed to encourage us to think creatively about how new strategies might forge new ground in understanding and addressing bullying and harassment so that workplaces can be transformed across the globe.


Academics and practitioners are invited to submit abstracts. All submissions will be double-blind peer-reviewed with accepted abstracts published in the conference proceedings. The conference program will consist of workshops, oral presentations, and poster sessions.
