Publication of Queen’s Management School’s Inaugural PRME Sharing Information on Progress Report
In October 2019, Queen’s Management School submitted its inaugural Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) Report.
The report includes a retrospective account of the School’s activities related to ethics, responsibility, and sustainability, as well as setting out a number of targets for the 2019-2021 period.
According to the PRME Champion, Dr Laura Steele, “The primary purpose of our first SIP Report has been to affirm our commitment to implementing the Principles of PRME and advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the School. In addition, it has served as both an impetus for and framework by which to review the consideration of ethics, responsibility, and sustainability across all our activities. We look forward to sharing the document with our stakeholders and updating them on progress as we take our plans forward”.
Key actions included in the PRME SIP Report include the hosting of an event on ‘Business and the UN Sustainable Development Goals’ in Spring 2020, 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.
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 (SDGs) and aligning academic institutions with the work of the UN Global Compact.
