The seventh Annual Humanistic Management Conference will discuss the nexus between solidarity, the common good, and humanistic management.
Business is not a self-serving exercise as it is rightfully expected to make a positive impact on society, acting with solidarity and actively catering to the common good. While this expectation stands in conflict with a singular focus on maximizing shareholder value, it is fully aligned with the humanistic management principles, which aim to deliver sustainable value along the triple bottom line.
The seventh Annual Humanistic Management Conference will discuss the nexus between solidarity, the common good, and humanistic management. The conference will assess and test the hypothesis that acting with solidarity and catering for the common good are part and parcel of the humanistic management paradigm just as much as they are a necessity to find solutions to some of the most pressing challenges we face as a global community. The participants will explore how respect for the dignity of life, integrating ethical considerations in management decisions and engaging with stakeholders can help business contribute to the common good whilst providing a checkpoint for a genuine commitment to solidarity.
The conference will cover three major thematic fields:
- Climate Crisis – Management in the Anthropocene
- Inequality – Managing the Convergence
- Actors – Politics, Business and Management
