The 3rd Annual Teaching Business and Human Rights Workshop, co-sponsored by Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute and the Columbia Institute for the Study of Human Rights, will take place at Columbia University in New York on Thursday and Friday, May 30-31, 2013. PRME will participate in a session targeting management educators. Please see the following message from the organizers:
This year’s Workshop will open on Thursday evening with a talk by Michael Posner and an informal dinner gathering for participants. Friday’s agenda includes a mix of topics aimed at individuals teaching the subject in different settings worldwide, with a focus on practical teaching strategies. Like previous Workshops, our goal is to provide an opportunity for teachers to share strategies and discuss issues of common concern. Each agenda item will be moderated with a few participants asked to make brief presentations. We have reached out to a number of participants already. Please contact one of us if you would like to present.
Last year’s Workshop convened thirty instructors. This year, we can accommodate up to forty participants. (We have about twelve confirmed participants so far.) In the event we reach capacity before the RSVP date, we will send out a notification that registration has closed. We anticipate having dial-in listening capacity for the morning sessions for those unable to attend in person. Sessions will be recorded, but live video streaming will not be available this year. Our next communication will include the confirmed participant list and any dial-in details.
If you will attend the Workshop and have not already done so, please provide the information in the attached registration form and e-mail it by Friday, May 17th to: Greta Moseson (Program Coordinator, Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute), firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no cost to attend the Workshop. Participants must cover their own travel costs. (Information on area hotels is available here:http://www.campustravel.com/university/columbia/)
The online Forum established after last year’s Workshop has grown to include more than 120 individuals teaching business and human rights in twenty countries. If you would like to participate in the online Forum and have not received login information, let us know so we can generate an automated invitation (from “basecamphq.com”).
A valuable feature of the Forum and Workshop is the exchange and discussion of course syllabi. There are currently twenty-eight syllabi (list attached) available to participants who have submitted their own, on a password-protected site at: http://www.law.columbia.edu/human-rights-institute/events/teachingbusinessandhrs. If you would like to submit, replace, or remove your syllabus, please contact Greta Moseson (email@example.com).

TBLI (Triple Bottom Line Investment) CONFERENCE™ is the prime annual global networking and learning event on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Impact Investing.
❖ Theme for 2013: "Rethink the Past and Move On" ❖
Dates: Monday and Tuesday, June 17-18, 2013
TBLI is one of the most important organizations to provide a meeting ground for those thoughtful individuals in the financial, industrial, academic and NGO communities who seek to create greater awareness about the environmental and sustainability issues. - Prof. Prakash Sethi, University Distinguished Professor, Baruch College
Over the past fifteen years, with gatherings in Europe and Asia, TBLI CONFERENCE has become the largest global gathering of financial professionals interested in learning about ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and Impact Investment. The Conference has built an international reputation for bringing together thought leaders from the financial sector for two days of roundtables and workshops on a multitude of topics in sustainable investment. It provides opportunities for attendees to meet, network, learn and develop new business opportunities.
June 2013 will mark TBLI CONFERENCE’s inaugural event in the United States.
More than 60 speakers from around the world will share their extensive expertise and experience with an international audience of 300-400 asset owners, asset managers, rating and research experts, NGOs, Foundations, Acadenics, and other financial professionals in the sector.
TBLI is a battery charger event. It’s an event that makes you realize how outdated your thinking has become. It is a crash course, a mini green investing MBA. It’s an energizing place—it’s got a critical role in diffusing the best practice. -Leo Johnson, Co-Founder of Sustainable Finance Limited
In the two day Conference, a broad array of ESG and Impact Investing related topics will be covered, including portfolio strategies for integrating ESG; ESG and Latin America; private equity, emerging markets, and many asset classes of impact investment, including infrastructure, energy, forestry, and green building. This year's focus is on climate change and on developments in impact measurement, addressed in two roundtable sessions and in the Keynote speech by Richard L. Kauffman, Chairman for Energy Policy and Finance for the State of New York - Governor of New York's Office and Cabinet.
Sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact the Conference organsers below for more information.

Following the good practice of convening PRME Summits between the biennial Global Forums, Steering Committee member, CEEMAN, the association of 210 members from 51 countries, and the PRME Secretariat are co-organizing the 2013 PRME Summit on 25-26 September 2013 in Bled, Slovenia.
The 21st CEEMAN Annual Conference, which will be held on 27 September in conjunction with the 2013 PRME Summit, will enable participants to continue their discussion, while also learning more from best practices and lessons acquired from the inspiring innovations in leadership development taken by CEEMAN members.
To continue the creation of a new intellectual, research, teaching, and institutional agenda that develops leaders for the future we want, the Summit will be a forum to share learnings from the innovations that have been taking place among PRME signatory schools. The concept of “4 I’s” will enable to cover the four major facets of PRME:
- Inspiration: What inspiration we can get and how we can learn from philosophy, history, science, culture and arts, sports, and other fields?
- Innovation: How to unlock the next level of management education and leadership development? What role could and should PRME Champions play in this respect?
- Implementation: How to ensure and facilitate a wider and deeper implementation of PRME, sustainable development and responsible leadership among business schools and their stakeholders worldwide? What is the role that PRME Chapters could and should play to facilitate this?
- Impact: What can we do as individuals, management development institutions, their associations, including through partnerships with our stakeholders, to ensure a deeper and persistent impact on the new role of business, responsible leadership and sustainable development?
As traditional for major PRME events, the 2013 Summit will combine plenary sessions with keynote addresses, panels and Q&A, as well as a series of roundtables which will further contribute to hearing the voice of educators, business community, policy makers, youth, and Summit participants in general.
Who should attend?
The 2013 PRME Summit is a must for all those engaged in the development of responsible leaders: business school leaders, faculty members and researchers of PRME signatories and schools that have not yet joined PRME, business and HR executives, those responsible for CSR and sustainable business practices, UN Global Compact local offices and networks, governmental representatives and NGOs, youth, media and general public.
We look forward to seeing you in Bled on 25-27 September 2013.
