Report from PRME Global forum in New York2023-06-26
Samuel Petros Sebhatu, Karlstad Business School, attended the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) Global forum in New York, 12-16 June 2023 hosted by Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business.
The PRME global forum 2023 focuses on impact across various session themes: pedagogy, climate, digital, and leadership. The 2023 Edition is the first in-person forum since 2017, and its plenaries also broadcasted to participants worldwide.
Samuel contributed to introducing the PRME i5 (Impactful 5) characteristic at the launch of the i5 Playbook as one of the 18 Expert Pedagogies (Ex Peg) on the i5 workshop, 12th June 2023. Samuel won the i5 excellence award with the Ex Peg team and also represented the PRME Nordic chapter as a member of the steering committee with steering committee members from Sweden, and Norway.
- For the last 18 months I have been part of PRME i5 of the global Ex Peg Group convened from PRME Chapters around the world working on an innovative and transformative project to transform leadership education in business schools and beyond helping deliver the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through responsible leadership, says Samuel representing the PRME Nordic Chapter.
As an Ex Peg Samuel engaged with Project Zero, Harvard School of Education, Sulitest, and PRME i5 team and contributed with an input to the Global (i5) Playbook and Assessment Framework and his existing (i5) best practice pedagogies.
The PRME (i5) is a three-year program that brings novelty to SDG leadership education by focusing on pedagogical approaches that make sustainable development the norm for responsible management education and leadership in business education. The purpose of this program is to develop pedagogical adoption of playful learning for holistic development among the PRME network of global leadership educators. Our target group for impactful change is business school educators, while the ultimate beneficiaries are business school students (18-28 years old) at UN Principles for more than 860 PRME Signatory schools. The i5 program is financed by the Lego Foundation.
