Call for papers: Responsible Leadership Reimagined Conference

16 – 18 March 2022 | Lanzerac, Stellenbosch, South Africa

WHAT IS RESPONSIBLE LEADERSHIP?

Responsible leadership is a leadership approach that addresses responsibilities and accountabilities of business leaders. It is driven by purpose and positive social impact. To reach a complete understanding of responsible leadership, its importance and how it can be implemented to benefit society, we need to establish a number of things. These include:

How do we make sense of the concept of responsible leadership globally as well as in the African context?
What are the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for the responsible leadership discourse?
What is the relationship between responsible leadership and social innovation?
How can organisations develop and nurture responsible leaders internally?
How can we establish a dialogue between sectors, co-create best practices and shape pathways and actions towards responsible leadership?

WHY WE NEED THIS CONFERENCE

The Responsible Leadership Reimagined Conference is an event that seeks to address important questions about responsible leadership, and encourage further research and to advance the discussion on responsible leadership in Africa. This will enable us to move towards a common understanding of what responsible leadership is and what it can achieve on the continent.

HOW YOU CAN HELP US

Send us your papers and contributions that theoretically and empirically assess responsible leadership and its relation to individual ethical decision-making, best responsible business practice (in for-profit, non-profit, hybrid, international organisations and government), stakeholder engagement, community partnerships, and cross-sector collaboration. With your help, we can increase our understanding of responsible leaders and implement the correct policies in order to achieve widespread, meaningful and positive social impact in greater society and in organisations around the world.
