Connecting for Impact Worldwide




Thank you for your interest in the 2023 PRME Global Forum. It was truly one for the books. See below for exciting highlights from the event this past June:

Stay tuned to this page for more information on future editions of the PRME Global Forum.


The nature of leading a business is changing from the exclusive focus on economic wealth generation to encompass a more holistic purpose, with leaders being expected to make businesses a vehicle for solving the environmental and social challenges the world is facing. Educational institutions have a huge responsibility to prepare responsible leaders to rise to these global challenges in new, integrated ways, and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide an agenda for the world to pursue.

With a dynamic program and purpose-driven speakers, the 2023 Edition of the PRME Global Forum provided a global debate on how business education can help advance the sustainable development agenda worldwide. The Principles for Responsible Management Education gathered business school leaders, faculty, students, businesses and sustainable development organizations for a Responsible Management Education Week, on 12 - 16 June 2023, in New York (USA), to advance responsible management education and its impact worldwide. The 11th Edition of PRME Global Forum was part of this week, and took place on 13 – 14 June 2023, hosted by Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business.

In addition to taking stock of PRME’s growth over the last year and highlighting the ongoing work of the PRME community, the 2023 Global Forum focused on impact across various session themes: pedagogy, climate, digital, and leadership. The 2023 Edition was the first in-person forum since 2017, and its plenaries will also be broadcasted to participants worldwide.
