Event Details

Join us for a stimulating workshop with insightful discussions and contributions from thought leaders in the field of social impact to develop your understanding of how business schools can act as a driver for social value creation.

The workshop will explore how business schools can put social mobility at the heart of their agenda, and position themselves as a force for economic growth and social cohesion. It will focus on three key aspects of business school activity:

  • Learning and Teaching: exploring how business schools can support students from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities and social contexts to achieve their full potential, and leave the business school as graduates with a sense of civic responsibility, who are ready to challenge the status quo.
  • Research: understanding how business schools can engage in impactful research projects that are able to demonstrate a tangible improvement on societies and the lives of research participants.
  • Business and Community engagement: identifying ways in which business schools can have a transformative impact on communities in which they operate, at both a national and international level through engagement initiatives that ensure that the business school is part of a broader community that is able to drive societal change for the better.

TARGET GROUP

This workshop is aimed at Business School Deans, Associate Deans with responsibility for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Heads of Department and other roles which have strategic oversight of a relevant portfolio of activities.
