 PRME Midlands Local Network: One Planet Leadership


PRME UK and Ireland Midlands Local Network, June 5th 2-3pm BST


One Planet Leadership – proposal for implementing collaborative education for staff, students and executives within the PRME network.


Presenters Jonathan Gosling, Emeritus Professor of Leadership, University of Exeter; Miriam Gage, Programme Director, One Planet Leadership courses.


This is an opportunity to find out more about a collaborative One Planet Leadership course targeted at experienced managers (Executive Education) and/or full-time students engaged in capstone projects (Masters or final year undergraduate level).  Given the growing requirement for responsible management practice to address global challenges, what does that call for in terms of responsible leadership, systems thinking and the deeper values required to address the shift from profit only to purpose, planet and profit mindset?  How do we take into account global perspectives and the breadth and depth of stakeholder values that inform this landscape? At this next PRME Midlands chapter event, find out how the ‘One Planet Leadership’ course addresses these issues while providing a forum for global exchange and a deeply experiential and transformative learning experience.  This participative session will also open up how this One Planet Leadership course can help address PRME, AACSB, EQUIS accreditation criteria.
