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.
