Dear PRME community,
I am honoured and humbled by the appointment as Chair of PRME Board. We are on a journey that is more urgent and more important than we had ever imagined.
PRME’s mission is to create a global movement and thought leadership for responsible management education. The need for PRME in the world has been reinforced by a global pandemic crisis, racial injustice and climate change. Today, it is more important than ever for management education to remain steadfast in its priority: to develop responsible leaders who drive business as a force for good, with the mindset and ability to deliver change and societal progress.
I look forward to working with colleagues at PRME and the UN Global Compact as we aspire to achieve targets set in the Sustainable Development Goals.
I am very pleased to announce the members of the new PRME Board. They have all generously agreed to contribute to setting the strategic direction for the future of PRME. They are all dedicated to the PRME Principles, and each one of them is an experienced and committed leader in the area of responsible management education. Board members are PRME supporters willing and able to advance PRME’s vision, acting in a personal, honorary and unpaid capacity.
The PRME Board comprises five constituency groups —management schools (i.e. Deans, Directors, faculty, students, etc.), international management and leadership development associations, international academic communities, UN Global Compact and United Nations.
The new PRME Board will have its first constitutive meeting on 25 August 2020.
It is my pleasure to present to you the members of the new PRME Board.
Chair of PRME Board
