2019 ANNUAL HUMANISTIC MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE THEME: SOLIDARITY AND THE COMMON GOOD
The 2019 Seventh Annual Humanistic Management Conference will take place on October 10. and 11. 2019 in Krakow, Poland organized and sponsored by the Institute of Culture of Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Cracow University of Economics, Silesian University of Technology and the Weltethos Institute.
Business is not a self-serving exercise as we rightfully expect business 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, we argue that it is fully aligned with Humanistic Management principles which aim to deliver sustainable value along the triple bottom line.
At our 2019 conference we will therefore discuss the nexus between solidarity, the common good and Humanistic Management. We will assess and test the hypothesis that acting with solidarity and catering to the common good are part and parcel of a Humanistic Management paradigm just as much as they are a necessity for us to find solutions to some of the most pressing challenges we face as a global community. We will explore how respect for the dignity of life, integrating ethical considerations in management decisions and engaging with stakeholders can help business deliver to the common good whilst providing a checkpoint for a genuine commitment to solidarity.
We gladly present to you the 2019 Seventh Annual Humanistic Management Conference in Krakow, Poland on the topic of: Solidarity and the Common Good. We will convene in one of the world’s oldest Universities right in the heart of Europe and have built an interactive program spanning two days to offer you keynotes, workshops, paper sessions, panels, ample networking opportunities and the launch of the Humanistic Management Network Poland Chapter.
Come join us at the 2019 Seventh Annual Humanistic Management Conference – together we make impact towards a more sustainable and more equitable planet.
On behalf of everyone at the Humanistic Management Network we look forward to welcoming you in Krakow.
