8th Responsible Management Education Research Conference

The importance of achieving SDG #1: Eliminate poverty everywhere is reinforced by global increases in extreme poverty and inequality caused by the pandemic as well as by the interconnections that SDG 1 has with all other SDGs. Commitments to prosperity and a better world are even more important post-pandemic, but to achieve prosperity for all, more complex, multidimensional, multidisciplinary thinking and dialogue are needed.

The main goal of the global 8thRMER Conference is to bring together the responsible management education community and its different stakeholders to address the issues of poverty, prosperity and the SDGs in creative, innovative ways that are grounded in the six RME principles of purpose, values, method, research, dialogue and partnerships.

The 8thRMER event will be held in The People’s Republic of China, where the successful accomplishment of the 13th National 5-Year Poverty Alleviation Plan (2016-2020) shows that high aspirations are achievable. This continues the RME tradition of holding inspirational, multidisciplinary and multicultural events that contribute to mutual sharing and learning among management educators and other stakeholders – all in service of creating a prosperous, harmonious, sustainable world.
