Business and Human Rights Student Ambassador Programme
Are you ready to become an ambassador for ethics and human rights in business?
The Northern Ireland Business and Human Rights Student Ambassador Programme is a collaborative initiative between Queen’s Management School (QMS) and the Northern Ireland Business and Human Rights Forum. The purpose of the Programme is to equip students with the knowledge and skills to act as ambassadors to promote ethics and human rights within business during both their academic studies and future professional careers. The Programme is open to students at any level from across Queen’s University.
The Programme is based upon three elements which must be fulfilled for the student to be put forward for DegreePlus accreditation and receive a certificate from QMS and the Forum:
- EDUCATE: Participate in three interactive half-day workshops organised by QMS and the Northern Ireland Business and Human Rights Forum exploring issues around human rights, business ethics, sustainability, and responsible management. Indicative dates and an overview of the content of the workshops can be downloaded here.
- ENGAGE: Attend two events, for example, meetings of the Northern Ireland Business and Human Rights Forum, the UK Global Goals Roadshow, or any other relevant activities as approved by QMS and the Forum.
- ENCOURAGE: Organise and deliver a student-led activity at the QUB Development Weeks held in May/June. This may include, but is not limited to, a talk, mini conference, or workshop open to students from across the University.
In addition, students will be required to complete a reflective workbook in order to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they have developed over the course of the Programme.
Places on the Student Ambassador Programme are limited and awarded on a competitive basis. A short application is required, which can be downloaded here. Please note the closing date for applications for 2019-2020 has been extended to the 31st October 2019 at 5.00pm.
