Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business will serve as the host of the 2023 edition of the PRME Global Forum, during which a dynamic program of content and purpose-driven speakers will focus on the critical topic of how business education can help to advance the sustainable development agenda.
The UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), which is a United Nations Global Compact supported initiative with the mission to inspire and champion responsible management education, research, and thought leadership globally, will convene business school leaders, faculty, students, businesses, and sustainable development organizations for a Responsible Management Education Week, June 12–16, 2023, in New York City. The goal is to advance responsible management education and its impact worldwide. The 11th Edition of PRME Global Forum will be part of this week, taking place on June 13 –14 at the Fordham University Lincoln Center Campus in Manhattan. Key themes of the Forum will include: connecting for pedagogical impact, climate impact, digital impact, and leadership impact.
Lerzan Aksoy, Ph.D. Gabelli School of Business Dean, and George N. Jean Ph.D. Chair, a leading advocate for the integration of ESG in business education, who will deliver remarks at the Forum and will provide commentary on academic research contributing to societal impact, stated “We are thrilled to be hosting a conference of this magnitude at the Gabelli School of Business, supporting the efforts of UN PRME in exploring the ways business education can advance and promote critical ESG initiatives. The subject matter of this important event is closely aligned with the mission and vision of the Gabelli School, which is a pioneer in this space. We welcome colleagues from across higher education and a wide range of industry sectors, who will work together to move a sustainable agenda forward—in and outside of the classroom.”
