Friday, 18 December 2020
Oxford Brookes Business School is delighted to note the election of Dr Jonathan Louw as the incoming Chair of the UK and Ireland Chapter of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management (PRME) initiative. His term of office starts on 1 January 2021.
PRME is a global movement of some 800 business
schools committed to re-aligning business and management education in pursuit
of the UN Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs). The UK and
Ireland Chapter has 64 business school members and an active programme of
events, conferences, research seed funding competitions and publications
designed to engage academics and students.
Welcoming this development, Professor Tim Vorley, OBBS Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean,
has noted "For five years OBBS has
organised a Writing Competition open to all students in UK and Ireland business
schools on behalf of the Chapter. Jonathan's
new role will provide us with many further opportunities to support the growth
and impact of an already vibrant Chapter. There could not be a more important
time for us as a school to be helping promote critical engagement with the SDGs
across our sector."
