This webinar will focus on the University of Bradford’s innovative approach and application of principles of responsible, ethical and sustainable management in all its activities, including teaching, research and community engagement.
The University of Bradford School of Management, a UN PRME Signatory since 2010, is very proud to have maintained its commitment to the PRME principles. We aspire to be a leader in Responsible Management Education and Research in Higher Education by building a sustainable environment that is inclusive and tolerant of diverse views and opinions, both national and international in character. The School actively promotes and applies the principles of responsible, ethical and sustainable management in all its activities, including teaching, research and business community engagement, as well as its dedicated strategy on Ethics, Diversity, Inclusion and Sustainability.
This is achieved through various innovative means, which the webinar will cover. It is hoped that this will inspire others to become mutually responsible entities in the nowadays closely knitted, borderless global environment – enlivening the school’s ethos of making a difference to the local and global communities and businesses.
