Annual Conference : “The UN’s Decade of Action: driving it, slowing it or playing catch up?
We now have less than a decade to go to deliver the 2030 promise of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the UN is calling for the acceleration of action. Business Schools should, arguably, be ahead of the curve and preparing programmes and graduates that are equipped to drive, shape or at least navigate the times of transformation ahead of us. However, it can legitimately be asked if traditional Business School programmes and practices are still more focused on preparing graduates for the world “as it was”, rather than the future in which their careers will develop and grow. Hence the questions implied in the title of this year’s Annual Conference of the PRME Regional Chapter UK and Ireland: what is the role of responsible management education in periods of profound and accelerated transformation like the one emerging? Are our choices and practices future-oriented, or legacy-driven? Should our role be about actively engaging with the shaping of an uncertain future, or is our main responsibility to maintain a safe and ‘critical distance’ from such matters?
Our more detailed Call for Proposals expands on these questions and outlines the three proposed conference strands: (1) Transforming Programmes for Action (2) Students as agents of transformation (3) Business and Systems’ Transformation.
Deadline for proposals: 8 April 2022, with confirmation of acceptance by 9 May 2022
Our colloquia and conferences are justifiably well-known for their friendly, open, supportive environments that nurture our community of responsible management scholars. So we very much look forward to your participation in these events. Delegate costs will be kept to a minimum, with all student delegates attending free of charge, to help enable maximum participation.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in June.
