At the upcoming 1st Responsible Management Education Research Conference to be held in Chur, Switzerland on 30 October 2014, there will be two sessions devoted to responsible management and poverty reduction. The deadline for extended abstract and/or work in progress is 28 September.
This research conference is the first of its kind to focus exclusively on implementing responsible management education in business teaching.
The two poverty themed sessions, proposed by the PRME Working Group on Poverty, are designed to include a wide range of topics and approaches:
- Research: Advancing the Discussion on Responsible Management, Sustainable Development, and Poverty Alleviation
The session will explore how research on poverty alleviation 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 or other organizations on poverty reduction and that 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 Poverty with Responsible Management
This session will focus on student learning. Papers that illustrate how to integrate 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. Proposed innovations in teaching are also suitable for this session.
Our sessions are design for maximum interaction and discussion between participants. These sessions will provide presenters with valuable feedback for further improving their respective research, publishing and teaching opportunities and practices.
*Conference registration fees are waived for all accepted conference papers.
