Save the Date: PRME Workshop @ CBS: Launching and Implementing a Responsible Management Education Program

We would like to draw your attention to and invite interested individuals to attend the new Copenhagen Business School and CBS-Executive program: “Launching and Implementing a Responsible Management Education Program.”

The course is aimed at dedicated business school staff responsible for reviewing existing activities as well as developing and implementing an action plan for responsible management education at their own schools. For signatories to the U.N. Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) this would typically be the official PRME contact person. However, the program is also open to schools which have not yet signed up to PRME. The course is aimed both at schools that are just starting this process as well as those that have been driving it for years but now would like to compare notes with their peers in a dedicated environment. We recommend that participating schools send at least two participants (one faculty member and one administrator) since the practice of responsible management education requires broad interventions that draw on different competencies. Furthermore, teams of participants will find it easier to implement learnings from the seminar when back on their home campus.

In the seminar attendees will discuss how to implement the philosophy of responsible management into teaching, research and administration at business schools. Topics covered in the seminar include responsible management in the core and elective curriculum, society outreach, and inclusion of responsible management education into the university brand and related communication activities. 


Please find out more about how to sign up for the program here.

We would like to draw your attention to and invite interested individuals to attend the new Copenhagen Business School and CBS-Executive program: “Launching and Implementing a Responsible Management Education Program.”

The course is aimed at individuals whom we sometimes refer to as “PRME Ministers.” This term underlines the quasi-political role PRME administrators play in our institutions. We often face (on our own or in a small team) the daunting task of reviewing teaching activities and suggesting ways to improve our institution’s alignment with PRME.

By joining this academic development course you will have an opportunity to review the key steps required for the launch and implementation of a Responsible Management Education Program. You will do so in a group of peers with whom you can share experiences and suggestions for how to overcome challenges. Following the success the program had in 2014, we are planning to hold it at run it again in 2015 at the following locations:

The GRLI's 2016 AGM explores the theme “Common Good, Common Ground” using the idea of place as a unifying and dividing concept. Participants are invited to consider ideas of belonging – What does it mean to belong to a place? What does it mean to be excluded? In what sense can a place belong to a particular group of people? What does that tell us about public and private good? In the context of a global crisis of displacement, who owns the earth, and what it contains?

The purpose of the GRLI AGM is to facilitate an environment in which Partners, Associates and invited guests may:

  • Connect and reconnect with each other, the vision and mission of the GRLI and the activities which support and promote Globally Responsible Leadership
  • Influence, shape and learn from the contexts in which we operate and in which we develop and practice being globally responsible

Save the Date: PRME Business for Peace Forum, Dubai 2016

The PRME Business for Peace (B4P) Working Group invites you to its first Annual Forum on Tuesday October 25, 2016. The Event will be held at the American University of Sharjah (AUS) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to coordinate with the 3rd UNGC Business for Peace Annual Event that will be held the following day in Dubai, UAE. The UN-PRME B4P Annual Forum will bring together academics, practitioners, civil society, and international organizations and NGOs to discuss cutting edge academic research on business for peace and to highlight areas where further research must be pursued.

The focus of this year’s Annual Forum will be on peacebuilding and conflict-sensitive due diligence.

Research from different academic fields has explored the connections between business practices and peace for the last 15 years. The business and peace literature has already inspired several organizations to embrace the concept and produce policy documents that offer recommendations on what businesses could, and in some instances should, do to promote peace (UN Global Compact, US Institute for Peace, Institute for Economics and Peace, Business for Peace Foundation).

The traditional approach of corporate social responsibility (CSR) to peace issues is a ‘do no harm’ approach, mainly to mitigate the negative social or environmental impact of corporate activities. Scholars and policymakers have begun to challenge this understanding by arguing that companies can voluntarily contribute to social and legal development when state and international institutions fail to do so. There is an additional challenge in the B4P context: mitigating negative impacts on conflict is necessary but having a positive impact on the root causes of conflict through peacebuilding activities better addresses current needs. Determining whether corporate activities are actually enhancing peace is possible by analysing the concrete set of activities being done and implementing conflict-sensitive due diligence mechanisms.

The goal of the 2016 UN-PRME B4P Annual Forum held at AUS is to explore cutting-edge research on B4P while also highlighting for academics the research needs and expectations of the private sector, government, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations.

Schedule

There will be two sessions devoted to responsible management education and poverty alleviation. In addition, there will be two sessions on the Integration of the UN Global Compact into Business Practice and Management Education to Support the Advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals.The deadline for submissions will be 3 June 2016.

This year’s conference theme is Linking the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Management Education at Universities.

The two poverty-themed sessions, proposed by the PRME Working Group on Poverty, a Challenge for Management Education, are designed to include a wide range of topics and approaches. 

  • Research:  Advancing the Discussion on Sustainable Development Goals, Poverty Alleviation and the Role of Responsible Management Education 
    The session will explore how research on poverty alleviation as No. 1 Sustainable Development Goal can shape responsible management action and practice.  Conceptual, empirical and focused research papers that advance the understanding of the role, dynamics, and impact of corporations, entrepreneurs, social enterprises and/ or other organizations/institutions on the advancement of the SDGs and poverty reduction and provide guidance for responsible management education are welcome.  Works in progress and/or proposals for innovative research designs that lead to new insights or challenge established frameworks about responsible management and poverty are also suitable for this session.
  • Teaching: Creating Student Experiences that Integrate Sustainable Development Goals and Poverty Alleviation with Responsible Management
    This session will focus on student learning.  Papers that illustrate how to integrate SDGs and poverty alleviation topics and issues with responsible management through action learning activities, use of multi-/cross-disciplinary faculty teams, curricular/program/course change strategies, involvement of stakeholders as learning partners are welcome for this session.  Case studies illustrating creative classroom approaches to poverty alleviation, the sustainable development goals and responsible management, as well as further innovations in teaching, are also suitable for this session.

The two sessions jointly proposed by three PRME Working Groups (Anti-corruption, Anti-Poverty and Gender Equality) are designed to include a wide range of cross-cutting topics and approaches.

  • Integrating the UN Global Compact into Business Practice to Advance the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals
    This session is designed to provide a time and space for diverse participants (practitioners, policy makers, and educators) to discuss the managerial, practical and business issues relating to the topic. How can we promote the integration of the ten principles of the UNGC into business practice to support the advancement of the SDGs? To what extent are businesses able to go beyond the bottom line and practice responsible management with regard to the ten principles of the UN GC? How can managers of organizations comprehensively and pragmatically address the respective responsibilities and risks in their business and managerial policy and practice? What are the emerging intellectual, research and educational challenges relating to the integration of the UN GC into business practice that will help advance the SDGs? What insights and solutions can practitioners and scholars offer to current and future business leaders on how to practice their professions responsibly in the face of myriad challenges related to the global sustainability agenda and SDGs? 
  • Integrating the UN Global Compact into Management Education to Advance the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals
    This session welcomes contributions focused on the role that management education could/should play in helping business to go beyond the bottom line and integrate the UN GC into business practice that would support the advancement of the SDGs. The contributions are expected to address different aspects of responsible management education, as per the six principles of PRME (purpose, values, methods, research, partnerships, dialogue) and the role they could play in redefining success in both business practice and management education. What are the main challenges related to the creation and implementation of the new intellectual, research, educational and institutional agendas to support the integration of the UNGC and advancement of the SDGs? What are the lessons learned from good practices and inspirational solutions? What are the new opportunities that could be taken at the level of individuals and institutions within the PRME community, including partnerships with external stakeholders?

The sessions are designed for maximum interaction and discussion between participants and will provide presenters with valuable feedback for further improving their respective research, publishing and teaching opportunities and practices.

We hope that among the presenters we will have also contributors to the twin book projects, Beyond the Bottom Line: Integrating the UN Global Compact into Business Practice and Redefining Success: Integrating the UN Global Compact into Responsible Management Education, which will be published in Winter 2016 and Spring 2017, respectively.
