Establishing the PRME Global Chapter Council

Dear Friends of PRME,

You will now know, but let me just again express how I am delighted that the PRME Global Forum 2021 is for the second time digitally hosted alongside the United Nations Global Compact’s annual flagship event but now even more integrated than ever in the Leaders Summit. We hope to continue the success of 2020 and to have again more than 1,000 participants and a lot of engaging discussions and virtual networking. As you will know, this year we invited the PRME community to submit proposals for Global Forum sessions and we received an unexpectedly high number of proposals and it will be exciting to see the selected sessions on the Global Forum stage in June. As always, we will have dialogues exploring and showcasing how business schools work to advance their action both individually and collectively, with our students and with businesses. So, you are cordially invited to register now.

One of the major achievements in March 2021 has been the official launch of the PRME Global Chapter Council. I am very happy to have commitment from a truly global team of four highly experienced PRME supporters to assist in guiding the development, strategies and goal-setting for PRME Chapters: Morris Mthombeni (GIBS, University of Pretoria, South Africa), Dima Jamali (College of Business Administration, University of Sharjah, UAE; Global Compact Local Network Lebanon), Alec Wersun (Glasgow School for Business and Society, Glasgow Caledonian University, United Kingdom) and Christiane Molina (EGADE Business School, Tecnologico de Monterrey, Mexico).

Establishing the PRME Global Chapter Council (GCC) was recommended by the PRME Chapter Review Sub-Committee in 2020 and the four excellent PRME supporters were nominated and then fully endorsed by the PRME Chapter Chairs in March.

The PRME Chapters are the backbone of PRME. They are regional platforms to advance the Principles within a particular geographic context, performing an important role in rooting PRME within different national, regional, cultural and linguistic contexts, and facilitating the growth and engagement of PRME with respect to the implementation of the Six Principles and integration of the SDGs. Therefore, it was considered of strategic importance for PRME to form a global support system to advise on their direction and development.

The purpose of the GCC will be to support the development and impact of the PRME Regional Chapters, offering dialogue, experience and support. As such, the GCC serves in an advisory capacity to the PRME Secretariat and PRME Regional Chapters, prior to the establishment of any new Chapter, during the Chapter confirmation period, and during the annual Chapter review process. The GCC will meet officially four times per year. But in between meetings they have promised to make themselves available. In fact, a few PRME Chapter Chairs have already reached out to the Global Chapter Council for their advice on Chapter development work.

I hope that you are all able to stay safe and well,

Warm regards,

Mette Morsing
