We are pleased to announce that the 3rd PRME UK and Ireland Conference “Collaboration and Capacity Building in Responsible Management Education” will be held on 19-22 June 2016, and hosted jointly by Nottingham Business School and Nottingham University Business School. We have been really pleased by the quantity and quality of papers we have received for this year’s conference.
The event will run in parallel with the annual European Business Ethics Network Meeting (EBEN). This co-incidence has inspired the theme for this year’s call: “collaboration and capacity building in responsible management education.” Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have provided a focus for the global business agenda with even greater ambition, and an emphasis to address the structural drivers of poverty, inequality and resource scarcity. As PRME signatories, our potential to influence business leaders of the future is widely acknowledged. As we consider the challenges set forth in SDGs, this may set a new emphasis for our research, teaching, relationships, and the capabilities that we need to enable responsible leaders for tomorrow.
The theme of this conference aims to stimulate discussion on questions such as: What are the capabilities and relationships that Higher Education Institutions need to enhance in light of SDGs? How can we better create meaningful collaborations that engage multiple stakeholders and institutions? How can we move forward powerfully together in service of the PRME principles?
Conference registration is now open until 20th May 2016. We welcome delegates from academia, business, public sector, and non-profit organizations, regardless of whether or not you plan to present material. Fees are £115 (including one conference dinner and two lunches) with a limited number of student discounts available.
Programme information and venue details can be found here.
