ABSTRACT In recognizing the persistent publishing challenge among African-based scholars, the African Academy of Management (AFAM) and the Africa Journal of Management (AJOM) joined forces to explore various alternatives to address the challenge. The creation of the Junior Faculty Fellowship is the outcome of that collaboration that seeks to build academic relationships between institutions and Faculty. This paper captures the reflections of the inaugural Fellow, Dr. Juliana Mulaa Namada. As we follow her journey between 2017 and 2019, we learn about relationship building. She shares details of her participation at the Academy of Management (AOM) conference in Chicago, Ill., her engagement with colleagues at the host institution, the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, and the opportunities to test her skills in writing and publishing. In doing so, we learn of the benefits and challenges of a truly global Fellowship whose value extends beyond the immediate mentor-mentee relationship.
