The Eighth Annual Humanistic Management Conference: Unity in Diversity is an international conference co-organised by the Institute of Culture of the Jagiellonian University. The 2020 event will be different from the previous Annual Humanistic Management Conferences as it will be the first online conference in the series.
The Eighth Annual Humanistic Management Conference Organizing Committee invites papers and poster presentations on the following three tracks or other subjects related to the conference theme “Unity in Diversity”:
- Educating and developing managers for a fair, just and sustainable future
- Management in the Anthropocene: diverse scholars united
- Open theme track related to managing diversity and unity in diversity
The 2020 conference will be different from the previous Annual Humanistic Management conferences as it will be the first online conference in the series. Consequently this year’s theme has a dual connotation. The organisers explain: “On one hand we want to use the decentralised character of the online format to celebrate the diverse and rich community that forms the Humanistic Management Network and unites our members behind our shared purpose. We, the Humanistic Management Network, show unity in diversity. On the other hand we find our world increasingly divided with ever more voices tuning in to toxic narratives of division, exclusion, suppression and aggression. We know that these narratives are unable to guide us towards any desirable outcomes; we know that that which unites us is much bigger, stronger and more relevant than that which separates us. So we will show during this conference that there is unity in diversity and how business can exercise agency to embrace and promote diversity to the benefit of all stakeholders involved”.
