De La Salle University (DLSU), in partnership with the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) and the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU), will hold the 4th PRME Asia Regional Forum on November 13 to 15 in Manila, Philippines. The theme of the Forum is “Sustainable Business for the Common Good: Developing Asia’s Leaders for Today and Tomorrow.”
PRME stands for Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), a UN-backed initiative that aims to champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally. Inspired by internationally accepted values such as the principles of the UN Global Compact, PRME seeks to establish a process of continuous improvement among institutions of management education in order to develop a new generation of business leaders capable of managing the complex challenges faced by business and society in the 21st century.
The PRME Asia Forum aims to improve understanding of responsible management education in an Asian context, and to strengthen PRME networking and collaboration in Asia, possibly through the creation of an Asia Chapter. Expected to attend the Regional Forum are delegates from PRME signatories in the following countries: China, Japan, Korea, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
A feature of the Regional Forum in Manila is a research conference that seeks to highlight socially responsible business practices of Asian businesses. Faculty members and students of business schools are welcome to submit papers on any of the following themes: corporate social responsibility, ethical business practices, sustainable business practices, social marketing, ethical advertising, social and environmental accounting, socially responsible investing, management of microfinance institutions, corporate governance, corporate social initiatives, strategic philanthropy, cross-sector social partnerships, and social entrepreneurship.
