She is also a Princes Trust – Business in the Community (BITC) South East Board member and an Inaugural Fellow of the Environmental Association of Universities and Colleges (EAUC).

Carole was previously Director of Social Responsibility & Sustainability at Aston University, where she developed and led ethics, responsibility and sustainability, first in the Business School, the Aston MBA and for the MSc Social Responsibility and Sustainability then across all schools in the University. In 2012/13, Carole was invited to be the Christopher Chair in Business Ethics at Dominican University in Chicago and in 2015, a ‘Researcher in Residence’ at PRiME in New York. Carole regularly speaks, publishes and participates in academic and practitioner events, locally and globally and also works with a range of business and community groups.

We invited contributions from students involved in all areas of research around responsible management and fulfilment of the sustainable development goals. The UK PRME event was held virtually, making it easier for students to participate. This provided an excellent opportunity for Ph.D. and doctoral students that have been impacted by the complications caused by COVID-19 to gain community support from academics working in similar scholarly areas.
