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.
2020 will be known as the year of realization. The COVID-19 pandemic compelled us to acknowledge a global need for communication and cooperation as existing inequalities present multiple challenges. In order to create a space to tackle these critical challenges, GBSN hosted the second virtual annual conference GBSN Beyond.
GBSN Beyond featured three parallel track experiences during the month of October, leading up to a 3-day virtual conference, November 15-17, 2021. These tracks engaged Learners, Educators, and Leaders. The virtual conference offered a program of keynotes, panel discussions, lightning talks, networking activities, and more, that generally focused on four themes: humanitarian logistics, climate change, healthcare, and human rights.
A vibrant hub of exchange, learning, collaboration and discussion.
GBSN Beyond is a premier international forum that convened over 1,600+ registrants from over 35+ countries. With an innovative approach to what a virtual conference can be, GBSN Beyond provided a variety of engaging learning experiences, knowledge exchanges, and opportunities to network and connect with colleagues from across the globe.
