As we usher in a new decade, our nations, insti-tutions, and communities are facing grand chal-lenges that include the impact of climate change, corruption, poor governance, persistent inequali-ty, and political instability which collectively, de-fine the context of management education and practice.
In considering the theme of management praxis through the lens of sustainability, responsibility, and ethics, our aim is to explore answers to questions such as:
- What role does management education play in preparing responsible and ethical leaders?
- How are African institutions and organizations responding to, and preparing for, the realities and challenges of climate change and other grand challenges?
- How can African countries and communities become resilient in the face of the volatile, uncer-tain, and complex environment in which we are living?
- How are different types and sizes of business-es in the continent responding to, and mitigating against climate change? How are they engaging their various stakeholders in their sustainability efforts?
