PRME Regional Chapter UK and Ireland 7th Annual Conference

2021 Theme: Crises and the Re-Thinking of Responsibility

Main Conference: 6th – 7th July 2021

Doctoral Colloquium: 5th July 2021

The 7th Annual Conference of the UK and Ireland PRME Regional Chapter will be hosted by Lincoln International Business School.

This year’s theme is an acknowledgement of PRME’s ongoing key role in the shaping of responsible management education and to inspire each member to continuously re-think their purpose and practice. The declarations of a ‘Climate Emergency’, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the racial inequalities highlighted in 2020-2021 give rise to opportunity for reflection on the consequences of business as usual, the role and response of responsible management education and the construction of the future.


Theme 1: Advancing pedagogy; challenges and opportunities

Theme 2: Partnerships with purpose; breaking boundaries

Theme 3: Creating a vision of socially and environmentally responsible management

Keynote speakers, panels and workshops will include leading figures from industry and wider society with a unique opportunity to see practical partnership working on a local level.

If you would like to contribute to the conference then we are currently seeking submissions. For further details, please see the Call for Papers section of the website.
