Goals & Activities
In line with the demand by signatories to better engage management education communities and connect with business on a local level, progress continues to be made to further consolidate regional collaboration, making PRME a real "network of networks."
PRME Chapters are regional platforms that advance the Six Principles of PRME within a particular geographic context, performing an important role in rooting PRME within different national, regional, cultural and linguistic contexts, and facilitating the growth and engagement of PRME with respect to implementing the Six Principles. PRME Chapters were officially endorsed as an outcome of the 3rd Global Forum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2012, and often maintain close connections with PRME Regional Meetings and Forums.
PRME Chapters develop their own internal arrangements and activities, while committing to:
- Provide a platform for dialogue, learning, and action on responsible management and leadership education and research
- Increase the visibility of PRME and its signatories in the region
- Adapt the Six Principles of PRME into the local context
- Develop and promote activities linked to the Principles
To learn more about PRME Chapters and their activities, read the First Report on PRME Chapters.
A Chapter becomes an Established Chapter once a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is signed between the PRME Chapter and the PRME Secretariat. The confirmation of the "Established" status is based on the understanding that the Chapter will engage in activities that are consistent with the purposes and objectives of PRME.
