The provisional committee of the PRME Chapter Africa was formed in March 2021. The scope of the PRME work is the African continent and includes existing PRME signatories in 11 African countries, including Nigeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Kenya, Ghana, Gambia, Egypt, Morocco, and South Africa.
There are currently only 16 active higher education institutions within the geographic region of PRME Chapter Africa and considerable scope for growth and development of PRME values, engagement, and activities in Africa.
The Africa Chapter is highly committed to provide PRME regional signatories with a forum to advance the Principles for Responsible Management Education, discuss issues of mutual interest and concern, as well as share and develop good practice and innovative approaches in Responsible Management Education.
The provisional committee is guided by the six PRME principles and is committed to working collaboratively together and with colleagues in other chapters as advocates of responsible management education. The committee also pledges to help others pursue the PRME ambition of integrating the SDGs into business school strategy, including teaching, research, partnerships and organisational practices.
Mission statement for the provisional committee.
The provisional committee of PRME Chapter Africa is responsible for advancing the mission of PRME, the PRME principles and the SDGs within Africa.
The committee is tasked with setting up the formal governance structures, establishing initial engagement with PRME signatories in the region, and creating the initial agenda for PRME Chapter Africa. The committee will also organise an inaugural event or foundation meeting to raise awareness in the region of the Chapter’s existence and purpose, and bring together signatories from across Africa in a meaningful engagement around PRME and the SDGs.
