The II Global Forum for Responsible Management Education will take place on 23rd June 2010. Deans and high level administrators of signatory institutions, as well as Directors of Centers advancing PRME within signatory institutions are invited to register. The Forum will have as overriding goals to get traction for the initiative and to attract leading business schools that are not signatories of PRME as yet. The overall design of the agenda, speakers and panels will be prepared by the PRME Secretariat and Coordinators of the Steering Committee members. Within the context of the Global Forum, a special side event will be organized, as a working session with the UN Secretary General, including Deans of the 100 FT global schools that are not signatories of PRME.
Please, mark your calendar: March 1st registration will open in the PRME webpage.
Fordham University has kindly offered to host the Global Forum at their Lincoln Center Campus and also sponsor a reception the evening before on June 22nd. This location will hold 250 people in their McNally Auditorium. It is therefore, important to register as soon as possible, since seats in the Forum are limited to 250.
