Abstract

2017 marks the 10th Anniversary of the UN backed Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and almost two thirds of Business and Management Schools in the UK are now signatories. This is the highest proportion of signatories for any region and the PRME Regional Chapter for the UK and Ireland is now in its 4th year. The PRME UK & Ireland Steering Committee’s connection with The British Academy of Management (BAM), through the Sustainable and Responsible Business (SRB) SIG, is seen as a being of critical importance and this PDW is part of the ongoing collaboration between BAM and PRME in the UK, in the same way that similar PDWs have developed within the Academy of Management since 2009.

In June 2017, PRME UK & Ireland will be holding its 4th Annual Conference at Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University and this will be followed in July 2017, by the PRME Global Forum for Responsible Management Education in New York.
Both events aim to;

1. Celebrate 10 Years of PRME, take stock of achievements and impacts of the initiative and reflect on solutions and opportunities to further develop engagement with stakeholders on sustainability challenges and opportunities at personal and institutional levels, as well as through PRME networks (PRME Chapters, PRME Champions, PRME Working Groups), the BAM SRB SIG and the larger responsible management education (RME) community.

2. Raise awareness about the SDGs, highlight their relevance for business and management schools and envision the role of business and management education in supporting the SDGs.
This PDW aims to be a collaborative, action orientated space in which to bring together the highlights of the PRME Conference and Global Forum and the experience of PDW participants to envision the future of social, economic, and environmental responsible management education in the era of the SDGs.
