Informal Economy, Poverty and Responsible Management Education: Global Perspectives

Program Session #: 464 | Submission: 10393 | Sponsor(s): (AAT)
Scheduled: Sunday, 5 Aug 2012, 11:30AM-1:00PM at Boston Hynes Convention Center, Room 108

The purpose of this panel symposium is to explore the ongoing efforts towards incorporating the study of the informal economy and poverty in responsible management education. The panel members will share their efforts to better understand the complexity and nature of the informal economy and poverty, and descriptions of their curricula and research challenges and opportunities. They will also compare and contrast the similarities and differences in approaches to integrating formal consideration of these topics in regional management education initiatives. These include empirical evidence from Brazil, India and Africa in addition to global surveys. The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative was launched in 2007 by the United Nations Global Compact and several co-convening institutions, encourages business schools across the globe to incorporate concepts of social responsibility and sustainability in their management education and research initiatives. Consideration is given to leveraging PRME as a vehicle for facilitating and supporting expansion of traditional management education to include the informal economy and poverty phenomena. This exploration and sharing of lessons learned can be of benefit to a wide range of management educators and researchers seeking concepts and best practices to better understand and eventually learn how to orchestrate the inclusion of informal economy and poverty topics in a more socially responsible way. It is the intention of the panel to engage the audience to proactively participate in this discussion. Learn more about the PRME Working Group on Poverty, a Challenge for Management Education.
