I am honored to have this opportunity to serve IACMR. I will devote to making IACMR more relevant to Chinese management research, education, and practice by building strong relations between researchers, educators, and practitioners, because I believe that the future of IACMR depends on its ability to help members better leverage their expertise in the creation and dissemination of management knowledge that is valuable to practitioners. A major initiative I plan to undertake is to make IACMR become more inclusive by attracting more educators and practitioners so that it will make a stronger contribution to both the academic and business communities.

I truly identify with the core values of IACMR — 'Pursuit of Excellence, Source of Inspiration, Responsible Scholarship and Spirit of Service'. As the elected representative-at-large in the Asia-Pacific regions, I will take at least three important measures to pursue the core values of IACMR. First, I will strengthen the supporting ties to help young management scholars. Second, I will promote the intensive exchanges between research institutes and industries, especially in China's Great Bay Area. Third, I will pay special attention to the development of PhD students by breaking the traditional mentor-protégé model, so that they can enjoy more freedom to realize their talent.

My experiences of attending the IACMR conference and being involved in the IACMR program of Responsible Research in Management have given me a great deal of insight into the reasons why IACMR is a strong association. For many of us, IACMR has served as a focal point for our professional careers and identities. As the Ph.D. student representative, I will actively serve as the bridge between the association and doctoral students, and encourage more doctoral students with academic interest to join IACMR so as to improve research experience and skills by way of academic exchange and cooperation.
