PRME Chapter Africa

PRME Chapter Africa
Chapter Africa AGM 2023 in Egypt hosted by the American University in Cairo

Background

PRME Chapter Africa was initiated in 2021 and the first full 3 year term Chapter Steering Committee was appointed in June 2022 following a rigorous application process of all communicating PRME signatories in Africa. The Chapter is led by a nine-member Chapter Steering Committee (CSC).

As at July 2023, the Chapter has 24 communicating members in 8 African countries, including Nigeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Kenya, Ghana, Egypt, and South Africa.

We have welcomed 6 new signatories to PRME Chapter Africa in the first half of 2023 and there is considerable scope for Chapter growth to develop the PRME values, engagement, and activities across Africa. The CSC looks forward to welcoming more signatories over the coming months.

The CSC organises an online orientation workshop for all new signatories, and the first of these was held in July 2023.

Vision

The Africa Chapter is 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.

Values

The Chapter 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 CSC of PRME Chapter Africa is responsible for advancing the mission of PRME, the PRME principles and the SDGs within Africa, for actively engaging with business schools and higher education institutions and growing PRME signatories across the continent.




The purpose of PRME Chapter Africa is:

  • to engage and grow the PRME network in Africa;
  • to advocate and develop thought leadership in responsible management education and research in Africa;
  • to promote and facilitate knowledge sharing on PRME in Africa; and
  • to support the implementation of the Six Principles and the integration of the SDGs in business schools and HEIs in Africa.

The key objectives of a PRME Chapter Africa are to:

  • apply the Six Principles in the African context;
  • increase the visibility of PRME and its signatories in Africa, by advocating for responsible management education, research, and developing thought leadership;
  • actively promote the growth of the Africa Chapter by engaging with non-communicating signatories, as well as business schools and higher education institutions that are not yet PRME signatories;
  • engage all PRME signatories in Africa and provide a platform for dialogue, learning, and action on responsible management education;
  • engage with other PRME Chapters, PRME Working Groups, PRME Global Students, and other PRME platforms and projects;
  • share examples of best practice on how to integrate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into the curriculum, research, partnerships, dialogue, external engagement activities, and the internal practices of the school or institution; and
  • develop knowledge sharing and thought leadership amongst PRME signatories in close connection with the respective UN GC Local Networks and their members.

The main activities of the Chapter Steering Committee of PRME Chapter Africa include:

To fulfil this mandate and advance the key objectives set out above, PRME Chapter Africa is required to perform the following activities.

  • Organise an annual general meeting (AGM) open to all Chapter members to discuss the strategic direction and development of the Chapter.
  • Host at least one additional annual activity on a substantial issue for PRME. This second event can be held in conjunction with the AGM.
  • Actively promote regular communication, knowledge sharing, and collaboration between Chapter members, and communicate activities taking place in the different regions of the Chapter, as well as Chapter events and activities.
  • Encourage Chapter members to participate in the Annual PRME Global Chapter Forum.
  • Encourage members to engage and work together with UNGC Local Networks at country level.
