The emerging PRME Chapter North America (USA and Canada) was first discussed at the 1st PRME Canada Meeting /Regional Meeting North America in 2013. The PRME Chapter was created during the 2nd PRME Regional Meeting North America, hosted by University of Washington Bothell School of Business on 10-11 October 2014.

During the workshop, the participants expressed their interest in working together and strengthening the engagement in the region, leading to the formation of the PRME Chapter North America. Please find here the list of participants of this meeting.

The 3rd PRME Regional Meeting North America was hosted by Coles College of Business, Kennesaw State University. A project called “2x1” was implemented for this meeting, encouraging PRME signatories to invite a non-PRME signatory or a colleague from their institution that is not that familiar with PRME, with the incentive that the second attendee does not pay the conference fee in order to promote the Six PRME Principles, encourage implementation, and recruit signatories.

The 4th PRME Regional Meeting North America was held by the University of Guelph College of Business and Economics in 2017. Full conference agenda and information can be found here.

The 5th PRME Regional Meeting North America was co-hosted by The Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit, Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University and the College of Business Administration, Kent State University June 2nd - 4th, 2019. The event brought together more than 70 participants from academic, non-profit, and corporate backgrounds. We hosted academic presentations as well as interactive sessions with business and social enterprise professionals focused on strengthening the economic and social impact of their organizations through examining potential partnerships with private, public, and social sector organizations. We explored the opportunities afforded by strategic partnerships and learned from each other about academic initiatives. We hope this convening has created additional momentum for partnering to accelerate the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

PRME North America and George Mason University’s Business for a Better World Center in the School of Business invite you to join us April 21-23 for the PRME NA Biennial Meeting in Arlington, VA USA. After so much time apart, we are excited to come together once again to re-engage with colleagues as we pursue the work of responsible management education together. Our theme for the meeting is Building a Better Future Together.

The meeting will include sessions focused on how we can work together effectively as an organization and how we can boost engagement across different elements of our communities throughout the US and Canada. We will enjoy opportunities to discuss both research activities and teaching and learning innovations. We will further share examples of partnerships to effect change and approaches to communicating the impact we are having to different audiences.

Planned sessions include a workshop for junior scholars, unveiling of curricular materials for integrating sustainability across disciplines, teaching, research, and changemaking sessions, poster presentation sessions, and working sessions on priorities and initiatives for the future of PRME NA.


Call for Proposals: We are still accepting student poster presentation submissions and conference registrations. There is a virtual registration option for the main room sessions and a one hour free junior scholar Zoom session Friday.

November 04, 2022 PRME World Tour Research Paper Development Workshop - North America

REGISTER FOR PART I HERE by 31 October SUBMIT A PAPER HERE by 2 October The PRME World Tour Research Paper Development Program - a partnership between PRME and three of the world’s leading international journals in the responsible management and business-in-society field, Business & Society, Journal of Business Ethics, and Business and Society Review - offers PRME Regional Chapters one research paper development workshop during 2022-2024 invited by the PRME Secretariat and co-organised with the PRME Regional Chapters and the PRME World Tour Organizing Committee, which consists of senior scholars and is chaired by former co-editor for Business & Society and Professor at University of Bath, Andrew Crane.

The PRME World Tour also has a more general ambition of supporting the professionalization of the scholarly field of responsible management research, by increasing the range of voices heard as authors and representing concerns too often marginalised or excluded from the most prestigious journals.
