AOM Specialized Conference: Responsible Leadership in Rising Economies‍

The Conference looks at what “responsible leadership” means in the context of a rapidly changing world, particularly in rising and transforming economies. We also seek to explore how the scholarly management community, in collaboration with businesses, policy makers, NGOs, media, and other stakeholders interested in the new role of business in society, could best support the development of responsible management and sustainable innovation.

Responsible Leadership is the topic of much debate in both academic and practitioner circles. Critics have pointed out that management education and scholarship often fail to develop the critical, creative, and socially relevant and responsive mindsets that are required to transform businesses and society, and to solve global challenges while being locally responsive.

Conference attendees will have the opportunity to network in a global environment, as well as experience the charming hospitality of one of Europe’s greenest destinations, surrounded by enchanting natural scenery. Lake Bled is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, and IEDC-Bled School of Management (Slovenia) is one of the leaders in innovative management education worldwide.
