Conference Theme

THEME: Responsible Leadership in Rising Economies

Hosted by:
IEDC Bled School of Management

In Collaboration with the following AOM Divisions:
Management Education and Development (MED)
Organizational Behavior (OB)
Organizations and the Natural Environment (ONE)
Social Issues in Management (SIM)
Strategic Management (STR)

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.

This AOM specialized 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.

Conference attendees will have the opportunity to network in a global environment, witness first-hand how old and new come together in the rising economies of central and eastern Europe, 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.
