PRME Chapter North America Biennial Meeting | Call for Engagement
The Gustavson School of Business at the University of Victoria is hosting the sixth PRME Chapter North America biennial meeting May 30 – June 2, 2024. We offer a forum for business school faculty, staff, and students to share their research findings and teaching innovations relating to the PRME principles, the Sustainable Development Goals, and other Responsible Management Education considerations. These include original, empirical and conceptual research, the scholarship of teaching and learning, innovative curricular or extra-curricular offerings, and the operations of business schools. The schedule will include a lunch excursion to a regenerative apple orchard, an Indigenous fashion show featuring local designers, keynote addresses, plenty of networking and future research collaboration development time. This call asks the following question:
How can business schools enable emerging leaders to be catalysts for positive impact in their organizations and communities?
