Responsible Management Education Affinity Group Meeting (United States)
@ AACSB's 2019 Associate Deans Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
8:30am - 10:00am
Pushing for Transformation: Moving Beyond ‘The Business Case for Sustainability ‘to ‘Purpose Driven Business’
The Responsible Management Education Affinity Group includes representatives management educators committed to advancing sustainability, corporate responsibility, social entrepreneurship and innovation, the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI), and the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) from AACSB-member schools.
This interactive session will explore the difference between these two paradigms and how this manifests in educating responsible leaders. The focus of the former is engaging in sustainability where it is economically profitable to do so; the focus of the latter is engaging in sustainability for the purpose of making social and environmental contributions that will improve the world. Session participants will collaborate to identify practical ways in which we can shift the dialogue in our colleges to engage faculty, staff, students and business colleagues with deeper levels of commitment to the SDGs in the classroom, research, and organizational engagement.
