Following the invitation to participate in a global survey on “The Issue of Poverty and the SDGs in Management Education,” which you received from Jonas Haertle, Head of PRME Secretariat in the PRME Newsletter, please see below further details of the PRME Anti-poverty Working Group (WG) project.
The current survey is designed to measure changes to the inclusion of poverty, inequality and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), since a similar survey (with responses from 70 countries) was conducted in 2012. While the results of the first global survey were presented at the 4th PRME Global Forum held in conjunction with the UN’s Rio +20 Earth Summit Conference in Rio de Janeiro, the preliminary and final findings of THIS survey will be delivered at the PRME 2017 Global Forum in July in New York, and 4th RME Research Conference in September in Curitiba, Brazil, respectively.
To facilitate global coverage, and thanks to a great help from our WG members, the link below takes respondents to a landing page where they can take the survey questionnaire in any of the following languages: English, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Chinese, or Spanish. In a day or two we plan to have the survey questionnaire posted also in Arabic.
The survey will take 15 minutes to complete. It closes on 9 June 2017.
Since the survey’s intent is to include deans’, administrators’ and faculty members’ views, we would appreciate very much if you could find a way to forward this message, or the information on the survey, to your colleagues and networks to encourage their participation.

UKI delegates discuss SIP reporting and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The 3rd Annual PRME UK & Ireland conference was hosted this year as a collaboration between two Universities (University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University) and also two related networks (PRME and European Business Ethics Network EBEN).
These collaborations offered the opportunity to attract a significant number of delegates (120 for the 2 conferences) and a considerable international presence (12 nationalities). There were thought provoking contributions from Senior Academic, Ed Freeman and Head of PRME Secretariat, Jonas Haertle and a range of paper presentations and workshops.
Robin Hood greeting delegates
The conference was opened by Robin Hood, who hopefully awakened the urge for social justice, equality, and the love of the forest in our assembly. Topics of paper discussions included curriculum design, student engagement, and leadership development. Workshops also proved popular this year with a focus on take away tools. The recent strategic review of PRME and the alignment of PRME with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were also discussed. The theme of the conference was collaboration and build capacity in responsible management education and these aims were facilitated in the time together and with many offers of collaboration across the PRME participants going forward.
The Chapter AGM was held during the conference and suggestions made for forums to promote Faculty Development, a student competition and opportunities to engage more businesses and students in future years. Thanks were extended to Greenleaf Publishing for their continued support for Chapter activities.
Finally, the Nottingham team from both Business Schools, headed up by Mollie Painter-Morland, Paul Caulfield and Petra Molthan-Hill did a splendid job of hosting the conference and invitations for proposals to host the 2017 conference will be sent out in September 2016.
