LEGO Foundation awards $6 million grant to PRME for leadership education

16 June 2021

UNITED NATIONS, New York -- The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), an initiative of the United Nations Global Compact, has been awarded a $6 million grant, by the LEGO Foundation for holistic skillset development in leadership education.

The grant, to be delivered over a three-year period, is the single largest grant awarded to the UN Global Compact family. It will be used to further enhance PRME’s work in equipping today's business students to deliver the innovative solutions that are needed to transform the private sector tomorrow towards a more equitable and sustainable world.

The project, The Impactful Five (i5): Learning in Leadership Education, will build on prior LEGO Foundation research and expertise to develop and pilot pedagogical approaches for holistic skillset development to help the next generation of leaders address sustainable development.

John Goodwin, CEO of the LEGO Foundation said: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with PRME to explore how our research and learnings in holistic skills development can be adapted to the skillset needed among a future generation of leaders, who will help address the fast-changing challenges of the 21st century.”

Dr. Mette Morsing, Global Head of Principles for Responsible Management Education, said: “We are very pleased to have such generous support from the LEGO Foundation, a global role model on education and sustainable development. This grant will significantly serve to advance PRME’s strategic mission on transformative leadership education and to drive the collective impetus we need to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.”

This is a global project and PRME signatory schools and universities will be engaged when the project officially begins on 1 September 2021. PRME has selected Sulitest as a strategic partner to develop an assessment and learning framework.
