The Albert Luthuli Centre for Responsible Leadership and the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, in partnership with the Leadership Collaboratory at the Copenhagen Business School and the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative, will host the Fourth International Conference on Responsible Leadership under the theme: ‘Leadership Challenges That Matter.’
The event seeks to show that business practitioners and scholars bring a wealth of practical skills and valuable insights to the task of addressing major leadership challenges and to emphasise that the business community shares ethical and social responsibilities.
To this effect, scholars of leadership, business, organisation, environmental studies, and the humanities are invited to tackle with complex and pressing challenges confronting business and society in a problem-driven, solution-oriented, and collaborative manner.
Proposals for papers, panels, and workshops or alternative forms of engagement on a wide range of topics related to responsible leadership, especially those addressing the conference theme, Leadership Challenges That Matter, are welcome.
Proposals for alternative formats and innovative workshops that will promote creativity and the exchange of new ideas are also welcome. In either case, abstracts of 1000 to 1500 words should be submitted via email to CRL2017@up.ac.za.
Date: 15 – 17 March 2017
Venue: Gordon Institute of Business Science, Johannesburg, South Africa
