Our goal for responsible management 

We aim to champion researchers, practitioners, policymakers and organisations who share our goals of contributing to a more ethical, responsible and sustainable way of working. Where institutions recognise that governance should be just, lawful and built on ethical and sustainable practices, we will work with them to facilitate the real impact of what they do. We look forward to working with institutions that lead with integrity and are underpinned by robust management systems, and that are educating future leaders across all industries.

If this aligns with your institution’s vision, and if you’re passionate about decent work for all that doesn’t discriminate or cause harm to economies, communities or resources, then we want to support you in ensuring your work reaches a wide audience with real-world impact.

Jo Jones, Publishing Development Manager, Responsible Management.
