May 25, 2021 Why business schools should stop teaching CSR – And what we should do instead

REGISTER HERE Part of the PRME Education Academy Seminar Series 8:00 - 9:00 am ET/2:00 - 3:00 pm CETSpeaker: Oliver Laasch, Senior Lecturer, Alliance Manchester Business SchoolIn this session, Oliver Laasch will argue that Teaching ABOUT organizational level CORPORATE social responsibility, CORPORATE sustainability, BUSINESS ethics and the like is problematic. By projecting onto an apparently distant, non-human organizational entity, it distances individual responsible management learners from their own responsible, ethical, and sustainable management practice(s). Oliver will present research conducted together with Dirk Moosmayer and Elena Antonacopoulou that has given rise to an alternative pedagogy centred on enabling learners to develop their personal responsible management competence. A variety of examples and experiences will be shared of how this responsible management learning pedagogy has been used in practice, ranging from practitioner MOOCs to undergraduate seminars. Oliver Laasch is founder of the Center for Responsible Management Education and an Associate Professor at the University of Manchester. He also is a long-standing contributor to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education initiative, including the second edition of his introductory management textbook Principles of Management: Practicing Ethics, Responsibility, and Sustainability (SAGE, 2021).

May 27, 2021 Webinar on Making Black Lives Matter in Business with the PRME Working Group on Business for Peace

Description:Although Dr. Martin Luther King is remembered for the March on Washington, few people remember that the full title of that iconic march was The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Dr. King was both a fervent supporter of racial harmony and a strong proponent of equal economic opportunity for Black Americans. Many years after the death of Dr. King and the passage of the Civil Rights Act, Black Americans still suffer from large economic disparities, employment discrimination, and a higher unemployment rate. The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others galvanized the Black Lives Matter movement resulting in many corporations issuing statements and financial pledges in support of racial equity. Yet, a year later, so many of those pledges remain unfulfilled. Beyond corporate statements for solidarity, what is needed is true organizational change that will grant more equal opportunity to Black Americans and to Black people all over the world. A world in which all human beings have true equal access to economic mobility is how we will all live in peace.Dr. Ajunwa will look back and assess how corporations have tried to respond to the injustice of racism in the US economy, and what they can and should do to bring us closer to achieving Dr. King's dream of equal economic opportunity for all Black Americans." This would follow the line in the synopsis, "A world in which all human beings have true equal access to economic mobility is how we will all live in peace."Opening remarks: Christina Bache, Chair, UN PRME Working Group on Business for Peace and Research Affiliate, Queen's UniversityModerator:Robert McNulty, Founding Chair, UN PRME Working Group on Business for Peace and Just Business, LLCSpeaker: Dr. Ajunwa is a tenured law professor at the UNC School of Law and an adjunct Associate Professor at the Kenan-Flagler School of Business where she is a Rethinc. lab Fellow.
