The Global Compact and the Secretariat of the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education have released an Open Letter calling on academic institutions to educate future managers and leaders on business and human rights.
Endorsed by the Human Rights Working Group, the Open Letter intends to raise awareness of the need for business and human rights education; prompt academic institutions worldwide to develop new courses and curricula; and allow companies to declare the importance of business and human rights education within their own organizations.
Make human rights part of management education.
Demand for business and human rights education is growing worldwide. Academic institutions are well positioned to prepare future business leaders to manage the human rights impacts of their companies.
The UN Global Compact, in collaboration with the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), invite companies to sign the open letter calling on academic institutions to integrate business and human rights topics into their curriculum.
