Leading global networks initiate Collaboratory for responsible management education

Tom Robinson (President and CEO, AACSB International),
John North (Managing Director, GRLI) and 
Eric Cornuel (Director General and CEO, EFMD) 
signed the agreement during a recent GRLI Board meeting in Brussels.

The other signatories are Jonas Haertle (Head, PRME Secretariat on behalf of United Nations Global Compact) and Dennis Hanno (Chair, GRLI Foundation Board).

The advancement of globally responsible leadership, practice, and responsible management education is set to benefit greatly from the creation of a world-class project incubator and collaborative laboratory by the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) Foundation—jointly implemented by the GRLI and UN Global Compact’s PRME initiative—in strategic partnership with AACSB International, EFMD, and the United Nations Global Compact.
The new “Collaboratory” on responsible management education is already facilitating deeper collaboration and improved efficiencies in the responsible management education ecosystem, while demonstrating the stewardship role that the GRLI’s strategic partners play as the leading global business and management education networks.

“With the launch of this new Collaboratory, the GRLI significantly strengthens our role as a purpose-led, partner-driven, and project-oriented movement. By widening our network of strategic partners, and co-operating more closely with initiatives such as the UN Global Compact’s PRME, we will accelerate the aggregate impact of transformative management education on business, society, and the natural environment,”
- John North, Managing Director of the GRLI.
“This new partnership has the potential to generate more efficient and impactful engagement of the Parties and their respective networks”
- Jonas Haertle, Head of the PRME Secretariat of the UN Global Compact Office.

Since its formation in 2004, the GRLI has stayed true to its mandate of being a movement that encourage, support and incubate sustainability and responsible leadership initiatives on a global scale. This platform has given rise to projects—already in partnership with PRME and other networks—such as the Sulitest (an online sustainability literacy test championed by Kedge Business School in France); AIM2Flourish (an online platform for sharing untold positive stories on business as an agent for world benefit, championed by the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio, USA); and the 50+20 Agenda (a vision and global movement focused on transforming management education in order to serve people, the planet and profit.)
The experience of GRLI Partners in nurturing and growing programmes from idea to activation combined with its unique emphasis on Whole Person Learning, will act as a resource and guide for the actions of the Collaboratory, and will facilitate the conception and development of new ideas and initiatives in responsible management education.
The strategic partnership is guided by comprehensive terms of reference and a set of guiding principles, which act as a living document with milestones against which the Collaboratory’s actions will be measured. Among its primary goals will be to co-facilitate the UN Global Compact’s PRME Champions programme together with the PRME Secretariat over the course of this and next year.
The Collaboratory will form an important part of GRLI's All Gathering Momentum (AGM) conference at Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick, Ireland in October 2016. With the theme ‘Common Good, Common Ground’, the AGM will offer an ideal opportunity for GRLI's partners, associates, and the PRME Champions to reflect on and shape the future direction and actions of the Collaboratory and its initiatives.
