Launch of NI Business and Human Rights Student Ambassador Programme 2020-2021
On 21 September 2020, Queen’s Management School opened applications for the second cohort of the innovative ‘Business and Human Rights Student Ambassador Programme’ in conjunction with 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.
Through a series of three interactive workshops, students will cover a diverse range of topics including ‘Becoming a Responsible Leader’, ‘Making Difficult Decisions’, and ‘Managing Challenging Conversations: Advocating for Yourself and Others’. The Programme will conclude with a student-led event in Summer 2021 focused on raising the profile of human rights within business.
