Created in 2001, the goal of the Management Faculty of Color Association (MFCA) is to promote and support the professional development of People of Color with a particular emphasis on African, Hispanic / Latinx, and Native and/or Indigenous descent who hold a doctoral degree in Management or a related field and who hold a faculty or administrative appointment (full-time, part-time, emeritus, retired) at a University or College.
The association seeks to achieve this goal through three major activities:
To date, several hundred management faculty from across the country have participated in MFCA events at the both our Annual MFCA conference and at the Annual Academy of Management (AOM) Meetings.
WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO BECOME AN ACTIVE MEMBER AND TO ENCOURAGE YOUR ELIGIBLE COLLEAGUES TO JOIN!
Our membership continues to grow, however we have yet to capture all of the faculty of color in our field (management). To date, several hundred faculty members from across the United States have participated in MFCA-sponsored events, such as our annual MFCA conference and activities at the Academy of Management meeting.
With your support, we can continue to provide these services to our Association members and the greater management academic community.
We encourage faculty to become members of the MFCA. MFCA members will receive certain benefits such as links to additional resources, updated directories, and discounted admissions to MFCA events (as these expand).
However, and more importantly, the strongest benefit of being a member of the MFCA will be the access that members gain to an extensive network of African-American, Hispanic American/Latinx, and Native American management faculty across the nation in order to advance collegial, professional, and mentoring relationships.
Institutions are also encouraged to become a MFCA sponsor in order to obtain increased exposure and to develop relationships with leading African-American, Hispanic American/Latinx, and Native American management scholars. As such, partnership with the MFCA represents an excellent vehicle for faculty and student recruitment.
