Recently, the world has faced a cataclysmic pandemic that caused disruptions in businesses,education, government operations as well as it impacted the global economy heavily. To deal with these pandemic conditions, many companies started changing their methods of conducting business,in fact, some companies used the competitive advantage of being digitalized while some companies failed to cope with the situation. Employee productivity, effectiveness, and absenteeism became one of the major guide ways for the company’s success. One of the main challenges faced by almost all the sectors is to deal with these highly uncertain situations that arise due to unplanned disruptions.Managing operations in such disruptions require companies to establish efficient risk management processes.

However, in recent times, it is observed that the researchers focused have shifted to building theories and models on risk mitigation, resilient value chain, and agile operations which will be helpful in managing future disruptions. Also, in case of highly uncertain situations and long disruptions,companies shall focus on bringing new capabilities to sustain in this highly competitive world. Thus, SOM 2022 aims to find out challenges, opportunities, strategies, and capabilities which can help not only the businesses but also the nation as a whole by providing encouragement to the scholars who are working in the field of decision-making under various uncertainties so that to manage the operations effectively.

SAWI Regional Roadmap for Workplace Inclusion

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​General Info

The Center for Inclusive Business and Leadership (CIBL) for Women at the Suliman S. Olayan School of Business at the American University of Beirut would like to invite you to the closing online event of the SAWI Project (Support and Accelerate Women’s Inclusion), to mark the progress to date on the Women’s Economic Empowerment Project – The SAWI Project, funded by the Middle East Partnership Initiative at the U.S. Department of State.

Women’s economic participation rates in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) continue to be the lowest across the world. Efforts to augment formal, dignified work opportunities in the region are crucial, and our experience over the last two years has revealed positive momentum in this regard. Working closely with our partners across eight countries and four sectors have provided ample evidence that ​change toward more inclusive human resource policies and practices is possible when we work together.

To learn more about this multi-stakeholder, multi-country, multi-sector work, please join us for the SAWI Regional Roadmap for Workplace Inclusion Online Event

Date & Time

May 31st, 2022 | 3:00 – 6:30 p.m. (Beirut Time) or 8:00 – 11:30 a.m. (EST)


Online ZOOM event

The SAWI event will officially launch the network of trailblazing employers who have been drafting and adopting more inclusive policies for the recruitment, retention, and promotion of women in MENA workplaces. We will also showcase the accomplishments by SAWI partners across the 8 countries.​ We invite you to join the conversation and the network, and to take action for inclusive human resource systems in the region.

SAWI is a milestone project by CIBL for Women to Support and Accelerate Women’s Inclusion in eight countries (Algeria, Bahrain, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, and Tunisia). SAWI has partnered with employers in the sectors of healthcare, education, STEM, and banking for women’s inclusion. SAWI was made possible by generous funding from the US State Department’s MEPI program, and in partnership with our regional team: Apotheox, BPWA, Democracy for All, Economia HEM, LLWB, Warsha and WEOIraq.

Format of the Event

The event will be held online via the zoom platform. The link will be provided at a later stage upon registration. The event will be also livestreamed on CIBL for Women Facebook page​.​

The 2022 Gothenburg International Research Workshop on Sustainable Economic Growth and Decent Work for All

Event Information


Thursday 25 August – Friday 26 August, 2022


The School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg

Event Type

Academic Workshop

The 2022 Gothenburg International Research Workshop on Sustainable Economic Growth and Decent Work for All will take place on August 25-26, 2022. Researchers from around the world are invited to present, discuss and network related to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8 in Agenda 2030.

At the core of SDG 8, is the great challenge of obtaining economic growth without compromising the environment while also ensuring full employment and respect for labor rights. Economic progress must be inclusive and in harmony with the planetary boundaries. The COVID pandemic has put enormous pressure on development, the geopolitical landscape has severely deteriorated with imminent risks of escalation of conflicts, we are nowhere near the reductions needed to avoid a climate collapse, and the great majority of indicators of ecosystems and biodiversity are showing a rapid decline. The existing economic system is unsustainable and the need to pursue further research in areas such as sustainable economic growth, resource efficiency, full employment, occupational health and safety, and policies for just and well-functioning labor markets is critical. For the same reasons, it is critical to synthesize existing research and urgently transfer that knowledge to society.

There will be keynote presentations by among others: Jan Steckel and E. Somanathan.

The deadline for abstracts is June 15th

A Long History of Cultivating Forward-Looking Conversation

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Stanford Africa Business Forum. In 2007, the forum theme was “Fostering Entrepreneurial Activities in Africa”. Its objective was to portray Africa in a more positive light than that more commonly seen in the media and create awareness of the diverse and burgeoning opportunities. The first forum was organized by a group of enthusiastic students headed by Wilson Irungu Nyakera and Kwame Ansong-Dwamena.

Though the theme has changed from year to year, the motivation behind the forum hasn’t changed. The forum has always been aimed at creating awareness of the opportunities on the African continent and bring together Africans and friends of Africa from the continent and the diaspora to engage on the most important issues affecting the continent’s growth.
