The Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM), the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), and Network for Business Sustainability (NBS) have teamed up for a week of convening focused on transforming education and research in business and management schools while also creating a community of practice for collaboration and shared learning.

The objective of Responsible Management Education (RME) Week is to advance responsible management education and its impact worldwide through convening and knowledge exchange.

Our life is undergoing a profound transformation. The Earth’s ecosystems are increasingly overwhelmed, geopolitical instability is rising, and technology is disrupting our daily lives at an ever-increasing pace. Global business is also changing–with an increasing need for leaders to be bold, thoughtful and innovative while rising to the challenges at hand and making businesses a vehicle for solving environmental and social challenges.

We all know that it is through education that we prepare the next generation of leaders for life, future generators of sustainable value for business, and informed decision makers. Underscoring the critical role of education, particularly business schools, PRME realized the need to promote collaboration among various stakeholders to emphasize the importance of driving positive societal change and creating a sustainable future for all.

Responsible Management Education Week: Agenda

17 June, 2024

Navigating the Ecosystem of Support for Teaching Business Sustainability | Virtual

Around the world, business school educators are increasingly aiming to integrate more sustainability content into their teaching practices. This journey isn’t always easy — but many organizations help light the way.

In this session, hosted by the Network for Business Sustainability, leaders from international organizations which support educators in this journey will present the resources and services their organizations offer. Participants will gain a broader sense of the resources available and how to use them.

Following the presentations, participants will rotate through breakout rooms for Q&A sessions with each organization’s representative (a “World Café” model). Participants can ask questions about the organizations, and organization leaders can ask for input or feedback on offerings.

Finally, the session will end with a panel where organization leaders take a wider view of the ecosystem, considering questions like: “How do these organizations fit together?” “Might there be collaboration or synergy?” “What can we learn (or have we learned already) from one another?” etc. We hope this panel will be informative for general attendees and spark new thinking or future collaborations among the organizations represented.

Register for the session and explore past resources from the NBS Series on Teaching Climate.
