    • Emergency operations plans
    • Community lifelines

Guides

  • ARD-C Toolkit
    • The ARC-D toolkit is used to determine the level of a community’s disaster resilience, in two parts:
      • Part A assesses the general context of the community, capturing local population data, governance structures, built environment and ecosystem attributes, vulnerable groups, and major risk scenarios.
      • Part B assesses the community’s disaster resilience level to a chosen risk scenario through a consensus-based focus group discussion, guided by 30 key questions, each linked to a particular resilience component.
  • Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030
    • The Framework was adopted at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai, Japan, on March 18, 2015 and aims to achieve the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries over the next 15 years.

Existing inequalities have been exposed and exacerbated by COVID–19. Our world after the global pandemic is likely to see the proliferation of these inequalities unless we focus on the inclusive management of our multiple challenges. From access to healthcare and education to the all-encompassing disruptions of climate change, as leaders of management education we have to forge a response that recognizes and addresses with intent the disparate ways these issues affect various populations.

GBSN and Universidad de los Andes are partnering to engage university communities (students, faculty and leaders of organizations) across the globe during the month of October, leading up to GBSN Beyond. Race2Imagine is an opportunity for university communities across the globe to convene, exchange and celebrate community impact, while also offering an opportunity to directly participate in the development of proposals and actionable solutions that can be applied in different contexts.

Race2Imagine features three sessions focused on healthcare, climate change and human rights. Each session aims to facilitate the exchange of impact stories from different perspectives: students, faculty and leaders from different institutions to  share their story about an initiative they have undertaken within their local community that addresses a challenge related to one of the four GBSN Beyond themes: human rights, healthcare and climate change.  These convenings will also  share their vision about the strategies, actions and initiatives that need to be undertaken in the near future across different contexts. 



Session #1: Friday, 15 OCTOBER I 8:00 am – 10:00 am EDT

Race2Imagine aims to facilitate the exchange of impact stories from different perspectives: students, faculty and leaders from different institutions and government and civil society professionals to  share their experience within their local community that addresses challenges related to healthcare.  

This convening will share visions of the strategies, actions and initiatives that need to be undertaken in the near future across different contexts. Co-hosted with Miami Herbert Business School, guest speakers will explore and compare approaches to university-health system collaboration to achieve impact, using the example of informing the response to COVID-19.

Session #2: Friday, 22 OCT I 11:00 am – 13:00 pm EDT

This session provides a venue to discuss the role of forests in climate change. It features case studies on the enhancement of forest carbon stocks through both afforestation and reduced deforestation strategies -afforestation of otherwise degraded lands removes carbon from the atmosphere, while avoiding deforestation  reduces the influx of carbon into the atmosphere while preserving biodiversity. The ultimate goal of this session is to stimulate a reflection on how businesses may constructively engage in the use of nature-based solutions to help solve the climate crisis.

Session #3: Friday, 29 OCTOBER I 8:00 am – 10:00 am EDT

This seminar will invite participants to reflect on how  business research can have a positive effect on the promotion of human rights. To do this, the seminar will leverage the research experience of a group of professors who developed a study during the Colombian peace process with the FARC group. 

Co-hosted with Geneva School of Economics, the seminar will feature panel discussions exploring academic and industry insights on human rights in illegal mining; human trafficking; drug trafficking; refugee rights; etc.

We’ve built a powerfully connected world, which has generated great progress for humanity. But that world also is more volatile and uncertain than ever. How do global leaders across business, government, and civil society mitigate risk and respond quickly, effectively, and efficiently to major disasters? What role should universities and business schools play? Few people are in a better position to address these and related questions than Amédée Prouvost, who until on a few months ago served as the Chief Operational Risk Officer of the World Bank.

6:00 – 7:00 I Asia Deans Panel: The Leadership Role of Business Schools as Catalysts for Sustainability

The Asia-Pacific Region has not been on track to achieve any of the Sustainable Development Goals and COVID-19 has only worsened that outlook. At the same time the economic center of gravity continues its migration eastward and we continue to witness the remarkable rise of higher education across the diverse countries of the region. Deans from the region discuss the role of business schools in catalyzing sustainable development in business and in their country, region, and beyond. They discuss the contextual factors which are helping or hindering these efforts, as well as the importance of collaboration across schools and with industry, government, and civil society organizations.

7:00 – 7:20 I EMERGING ECONOMIES’ RESPONSE TO COVID-19: A CASE OF SONJO IN YOGYAKARTA, INDONESIA

During the COVID-19 pandemic, developed countries have provided subsidies to their society and business. In developing countries this may not be the case as financial resources are much more limited. This has been exacerbated, in some countries, by the minimum role of the government in tackling the pandemic. It leaves people to develop a social capital to help themselves to mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19. SONJO is a social capital, based on volunteerism, in Yogyakarta, Indonesia during the COVID-19 pandemic. SONJO has more than 1800 members spread over 20 WhatsApp groups (WAGs), covering 20 programs in health, economy, and education. SONJO aims to help vulnerable people of the impacts of COVID-19 in Yogyakarta.

It will provide participants from business, government and civil society with ideas and tools to improve corporate responsibility and engagement strategies and human rights due diligence to keep pace with current developments in legislation and norms. The pandemic has seen novel interventions by companies help combat the effects of COVID-19 at the community level while the pandemic has made the vulnerabilities of the system even more visible. The planed EU Directive on mandatory human rights and environmental due diligence is setting the path towards new development. What are examples that companies and training programmes can use to go beyond Do No Harm, and respond to pressures? Speakers will draw on the findings from the research programme the UN Business and Human Security Initiative.

Following a meeting at GBSN’s 2019 conference in Lisbon, David Steingard and Simon Linacre have been working on a methodology for analysing how a journal has engaged with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This has resulted in a new metric – SDG Impact Intensity™ – the first academic journal rating system for evaluating how journals contribute to positively impact SDG. SDG Impact Intensity™ provides a rating of up to three ‘SDG wheels’ to summarize the SDG relevance of articles published over a five-year period (2016-2020). Findings show that journals well-known for academic quality performed badly when assessed for SDG relevance, while journals focused on sustainability issues performed much better.

14:00 – 14:55 I Business, Poverty and Climate Action: Promoting People-Centered Solutions in Africa

Although climate change is a global phenomenon, its negative impacts are more severely felt by poor people and poor countries. They are more vulnerable because of their high dependence on natural resources, and their limited capacity to cope with climate variability and extremes. The objective of this session is to contribute to a global dialogue on how businesses can respond and mitigate the many adverse effects of climate change in Africa while aiding poverty reduction efforts.

15:00 – 16:00 I SUSTAINABLE FINANCE AND INVESTMENT

How can the finance and investment sector do more to accelerate the transformation of business for sustainability? What are the obstacles and opportunities? What role do business schools and scholars play? How can we work together in business schools to build capacity and capability in the sustainable finance space around research, teaching, and engagement, and how that may differ from what we normally do? Panelists will address these and other important questions in this indispensable discipline.

6:00 – 6:50 I An Inclusive Recovery: Gender Equity Key to Post PANDEMIC Resilience

Inequalities between women and men in the world of work have been exacerbated during COVID-19 and will persist beyond the pandemic. 13 million fewer women will be employed in 2021 compared to 2019, while men’s employment will have recovered to 2019 levels according to the ILO. The UN reports set backs to global efforts to achieve most gender-related SDG targets, especially those relating to SDG 3 regarding Good Health and Well-being and SDG 5, gender equality. The culture within business cannot be separated from the culture within business education. How do we proactively center gender equity in our recovery efforts?

7:10 – 8:00 I Women’s Leadership: Innovative and Equitable Entrepreneurship

Already challenging for anyone, anywhere, the journey to becoming a successful entrepreneur can be particularly difficult for women in many low and middle income countries. This session will explore efforts to enable and empower women to start and lead businesses in especially complex environments, where solidarity can be as important as knowledge and skills. How can we truly make leadership, management, and entrepreneurship education more relevant and accessible to women?

9:00 – 9:30 I Mad Max or the Wild West: what is the future of lifelong and executive education?

In the next decades, a myriad of forces will continue to disrupt and displace, as well as create new opportunities for massive numbers of workers worldwide. They will need to learn new skills. Meanwhile, technology and other factors are transforming the higher education ecosystem. This session provides insights from The Future of Lifelong and Executive Education joint research by CarringtonCrisp and LinkedIn and will focus on helping business schools and universities to navigate the opportunities and challenges in the rapidly growing marketplace of adult learners.

9:30 – 10:20 I Stakeholder dialogue: The Future of Work

A lot has been said about the future of work and the skills that will be required. But we haven’t talked enough about the differences across sectors and countries. This session is designed to consider these differences and what they mean for universities and business schools. How will the future of work be different in Africa versus the Europe? What does this mean for our views about the skills and competencies we need to develop? This has implications not just for the workplace and workforce but also raises important questions about what and how we teach in management education.

10:20 – 11:00 I Keynote: Impact of Remote and Hybrid Work on the Culture of Innovation

Has hybrid work put us at risk for social disengagement? Is it threatening to deplete one of our most important and relevant resources—our social capital? Perhaps more than ever, how we are connected is a critical determinant of success and well-being. Based on years of research and experience across major global companies–and leveraging the discoveries from the pandemic’s grand experiment with remote work–this session will explore the future of hybrid work and its impact on performance, productivity, learning, and innovation.

11:00 – 12:15 I DEANS Networking Session, sponsored by GMAC

This invitation only* session, sponsored by GMAC, will convene Deans from leading schools across the globe to engage in conversations around the challenges and opportunities for business schools in our current environment. In this 75-minute session Deans will reconnect with peers and discuss key issues that matter most to you. This session offers a place to share creative thinking and innovative solutions your school is implementing to overcome obstacles.

11:00 – 12:00 I Business, Privacy, and Human Rights: The Example of Trusted Cloud Principles for Human Rights Protection

Issues related to privacy and human rights have always been complex, involving multiple stakeholders in business, government, and civil society. Recent advances in technology have made these issues even more important to address. This session will explore these areas of concern and examine how they can be addressed with the help of universities and business schools, using the example of the just released Trusted Cloud Principles for Human Rights Protection.

12:15 – 12:25 I KEYNOTE: Health Supply Chains & Humanitarian LOGISTICS

The issues associated with the global supply chain have been at the top news agendas throughout the pandemic. These issues take on greater importance, and complexity, when it comes to health and humanitarian logistics and can be especially challenging to address in developing world contexts. Our keynote speaker has spent a career in this space, with PSA a leading consulting organization, UNICEF, United Nations Population Fund, and Oxfam GB.

1:20 – 2:00 I Making Business School Cases More Balanced and Diverse

In the hands of experienced teachers, case studies are an effective way to acquire knowledge and develop skills for managing in organizations. But there are critical gaps in the portfolio of cases available to educators worldwide. Most cases are not written to address challenging issues related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. There are not enough cases that are relevant to learners in emerging economies. Case libraries underrepresent the critical connections between government, civil society and business. This session explores these gaps and efforts to close them.

GBSN and EFMD are pleased to announce a joint initiative to celebrate institutional programs and initiatives that serve our communities worldwide. The Going BEYOND Awards are designed to highlight and share programs and initiatives that strengthen society, demonstrate community impact and embody the spirit of inclusive and sustainable development.

Qualifying entries describe programs and initiatives that have demonstrated a positive impact on society BEYOND the traditional degree programs offered by institutions and academic research published in journals. Qualifying entries will be organized and featured in an online showcase.

The top entries will be featured during a plenary session during the virtual conference, Nov 15-17.

Award Values

Program entries will demonstrate one or more of the following values:

Empowers and enables people

GBSN and EFMD are especially interested in programs targeting people who have been historically excluded from management education and development activities. For example, programs targeting people in developing countries, vulnerable populations such as refugees or low-income neighborhoods, rural communities without basic infrastructure, etc.

Catalyzes inclusive and sustainable development

The program has a direct positive impact on society beyond helping learners to find jobs or insights that can be shared from a published article. GBSN and EFMD are looking for programs that benefit business in a way that fosters sustainability and approaches beyond the narrow view on short-term profit making and shareholders.

Demonstrates contextual relevance

GBSN and EFMD believe that learning is most effective when it is contextually relevant. The program or initiative should have special meaning within the context most relevant for the learners. For example, the programs can show how content is localized and/or leverages peer-to-peer learning and builds-in context-specific experiential learning.

International connectivity and collaboration

Global connectivity can support local development. Describe how the program creates value through international connections, whether it be through GBSN, EFMD or other means.

Deans Networking Session

This invitation only* session, sponsored by GMAC, will convene Deans from leading schools across the globe to engage in conversations around the challenges and opportunities for business schools in our current environment.

Associate Deans Session: The Future of Innovation ecosystems in a Post-Pandemic World

This invitation only* session, sponsored by MIT REAP, will convene Associate Deans from leading schools across the globe to engage in conversations about university stakeholder strategies for supporting resilience and competitive advantage following COVID-19.

Assessing Personal Skills and Qualities for Admissions and Student Development

This public session, sponsored by ETS, will discuss the benefits of knowing more about applicants than what is revealed in GPAs and test scores. Assessing applicants’ perseverance, resiliency, self-discipline, and curiosity, among other qualities can lead to better admission decisions and can serve as the basis for developing those qualities post enrollment to better prepare business school students for their career.

We will discuss various approaches for assessing these qualities, and provide a short demonstration of a novel self-assessment approach being pilot tested by ETS at several Business Schools over the coming year.

Virtual Conference

The virtual conference will feature keynotes, panel discussions, lightning talks, workshops, and networking activities that generally focus on four themes: humanitarian logistics, climate change, healthcare, and human rights.

Our innovative approach to what a virtual conference can be hopes to create an engaging community that will collectively explore multi-sector collaboration in development. We invite you to join the conversation by submitting a session proposal. 

GBSN Beyond convenes over 2,500+ participants from over 50+ countries including audiences from academia, industry, government, and civil society. Utilizing a versatile events platform –– filled with a variety of engaging, distinctive experiences, content, and opportunities –– GBSN Beyond is a premier international forum to connect with diverse perspectives.

Conference Topic

Business schools are ideally placed to be the nexus between government, business and civil society in shaping a collective response to our most critical challenges.

Existing inequalities have been exposed and exacerbated by COVID–19[1]. Our world after the global pandemic is likely to see the proliferation of these inequalities unless we focus on the inclusive management of our multiple challenges. From access to healthcare and education to the all-encompassing disruptions of climate change, as leaders of management education we have to forge a response that recognizes and addresses with intent the disparate ways these issues affect various populations[2]. Researchers warn the longer the delay, the more disorderly, disruptive and abrupt the policy responses to climate change will inevitably be[3]. Pre-pandemic numbers indicate approximately 250 000 additional deaths per year between 2030 and 2050 are likely to occur as a result of the climate emergency while areas with weak health infrastructure – mostly in developing countries – will be the least able to cope[4].

Every business school can act now to capture insights in the form of new curriculum content for the future we are building. Let’s translate current experiences into the lessons for sustainable development. By connecting business schools to business, government and civil society we hope to make a difference now.

How do we upskill, collaborate, and innovate across sectors with a need so urgent and vast? How are universities, businesses, and governments preparing for a new age of lifelong learning?

At GBSN Beyond, we hope to collectively explore multi-sector collaboration in developing talent needed for society. GBSN’s focal point is on people development. To build better societies and communities, we must collectively build trust, understand the role of each stakeholder and embrace the notion of adaptability. The goal is to go local, developing talent within the context of local community.

GBSN seeks a diversity of perspectives for sessions across 4 overarching themes.
