The European Academy of Business in Society (EABIS) and the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) are pleased to announce the formal launch of their new Business in Society Gateway website (www.businessinsociety.eu). The Gateway profiles the latest knowledge and learning on the subject of corporate responsibility within a global community of business schools and universities. It will serve as a multi-stakeholder, multi-media platform to raise awareness and provide access to key resources. It has been created through the strategic partnership between EABIS and EFMD, two of the world’s foremost management development networks. Both organisations work closely with some of the world’s largest companies and the top business schools to enhance the quality and relevance of training and research. Its launch comes at a vital time, with the international community attempting to make sense of the financial crisis and the collective failure of corporate leadership and governance systems. EABIS Director General Simon Pickard commented: "The current crisis makes it clear that future generations of business leaders will require very different skills and attitudes to what has traditionally been taught. Business schools and universities are under pressure to integrate corporate responsibility and sustainability into the heart of their teaching and research. The Gateway highlights the progress that business school pioneers are making towards this vital goal."
