REGISTER HERE 7 April, 10:00 - 11:00 am EST/4:00- 5:00 pm CET Management and War: How Organisations Navigate Conflict and Build Peace Description: War and conflict are a reality of life throughout the world. While much is written about the impact of violence and disorder, how people and organisations adapt to these environments is still poorly understood. This seminar will look at the often hidden story of organisational actors managing through and beyond violent conflict, building businesses, delivering services and navigating change processes in environments of violence and peacebuilding. In this, it argues that ethno-political conflict and war are organisational as well as a political processes, and that moving beyond conflict cannot be successfully achieved without a recognition of organisational actors as key to that resolution process. The seminar will draw on data from three cases: Northern Ireland, The Basque Country and Bosnia.Speaker: Dr. Joanne Murphy,Reader in Leadership and Organisational Change and Co Director of the Centre for Leadership, Ethics and Organisation, Queen’s Management School, Belfast.Moderator: Dr. Christina Bache,Visiting Fellow, London School of Economics and Political Science, IDEAS Chair, United Nations, Principles for Responsible Management Education, Working Group on Business for Peace.This webinar will be recorded.

April 21, 2021 PRME Chapter Talks - Title: How to write an award-winning SIP Report: Lessons from the front line!

REGISTER HERE Wednesday, 21 April 11:00 am EST/4:00 pm UKA central commitment of any institution participating in the PRME initiative is to regularly share information with its stakeholders on the progress made in implementing the Six Principles through a Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) report. As a key integrity measure, the SIP's main objective is to serve as a public vehicle for information on responsible management education. In addition, the SIP can be an effective tool for facilitating stakeholder dialogue as well as internal learning communities. While a business school’s SIP can provide great value, both to the individual signatory as well as to the wider global PRME community – writing one – let alone writing an award-winning SIP – is no easy matter, especially at the first time of asking! Hence our Chapter Talk Title this month: How to write an award-winning SIP Report: Lessons from the front line! This PRME Chapter Talk is hosted by the UK & Ireland Chapter Chair, Dr Jonathan Louw, joined by: Professor Mette Morsing, Head of PRME, Dr Laura Steele: Award-winning SIP author 2019, and PRME Champion at Queen’s Management School, Belfast Dr Alec Wersun, Member of the newly formed PRME Global Chapter CouncilBackground to PRME Chapter Talks: The PRME Chapter Talks series is a cross-chapter space for thought-provoking knowledge exchange on sustainability challenges and solutions, for educators and business leaders alike. The Talks are designed to provide inspiration to the PRME Community around the world, where each individual may not face the exact same challenges but may be stimulated to ‘translate’ those challenges and the way they are addressed to their own local context. Each month, a different PRME Regional Chapter hosts a 1-hour webinar on a topic of their choosing in the space of responsible management education.
