AIM2Flourish was a featured participant at this week's UN Global Compact PRME Champions and the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI)'s All Gathering Momentum meetings, encompassing a week of learning and action hosted by Kemmy Business School (KBS) at University of Limerick in Ireland.

On Sunday, Oct 16, AIM2Flourish Communications Director Claire Sommer participated in the UN Global Compact PRME Champions Initiative co-facilitated by the GRLI. AIM2Flourish is a featured initiative in an emerging collaborative PRME Champions meeting to advance online learning about the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The 2016 GRLI AGM on October 17-19 explored the theme “Common Good, Common Ground” using the idea of place as a unifying and dividing concept. During interactive "Dream and Design" sessions, attendees explored collaborations to support and promote Globally Responsible Leadership.

Along with Sommer, Chris Laszlo, Fowler Center Executive Faculty Director and Rob Widing, Weatherhead School of Management Dean attended the GRLI AGM to grow and expand AIM2Flourish's impact world wide.

As outcomes, AIM2Flourish is welcoming new professors to our global network from Colombia, Mexico, and Ireland. Discussions are underway to explore how AIM2Flourish can collaborate with and support other transformative education initiatives like the Sustainability Literacy Test (SuLiText) from Kedge Business School in France, and the CARL Assessment Tool from Business School Lausanne in France.

 

As well, Laszlo hosted a session on the Fowler Center's Quantum Leadership research initiative. All session attended were warmly welcomed to attend the Fourth Global Forum for Business as an Agent of World Benefit on June 14-16, 2017 at the Weatherhead School of Management.

 

The AIM2Flourish team extends thanks to Jonas Haertle, UN Global Compact PRME Head, GRLI Managing Director John North, PRME colleague Nikolay Ivanov and GRLI colleague Dagna Rupieta, and most of all to Kemmy Business School hosts Dean Philip O'Regan and Assistant Dean Sheila Killian for their hospitality.
