Queen’s Management School Receives Award for Excellence in PRME SIP Reporting
Queen’s Management School was awarded the prize for Excellence in First Time Reporting for our inaugural Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) Sharing Information on Progress Report at the PRME Global Forum on 18 June 2020.
PRME is a United Nations-supported initiative founded in 2007 as a platform to raise the profile of sustainability in business and management schools around the world, and to equip today’s business students with the understanding and ability to deliver change tomorrow. Working through Six Principles, PRME engages schools to ensure they provide future leaders with the skills needed to balance economic and sustainability goals, while drawing attention to the Sustainable Development Goals and aligning academic institutions with the work of the UN Global Compact.
Our PRME Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) Report includes a retrospective account of the Management School’s activities related to ethics, responsibility, and sustainability, as well as setting out a number of targets for the 2019-2021 period. Key actions included in the PRME SIP Report include the hosting of an event on ‘Business and the UN Sustainable Development Goals’, the continued delivery of the Northern Ireland Business and Human Rights Student Ambassador Programme, and the ongoing development of the Northern Ireland Peace Index (NIPI) through the William J. Clinton Leadership Institute at Queen’s Management School.
Initiated by the PRME Secretariat with key support and leadership from Special Advisor Giselle Weybrecht, the SIP Recognitions have become a hallmark event during each Global Forum, intended to showcase the most exceptional examples of SIP Reports from PRME signatories. According to our PRME Champion, Dr Laura Steele, ‘At Queen’s Management School we are highly committed to the Principles of PRME, as well as advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We are delighted to have received this recognition of our efforts from the PRME Secretariat’.
