The 2022 Tenth Annual Humanistic Management Conference will take place online on the 24th of November 2022.

The theme of this year’s conference is Collaborating for Impact, and we want to look at different dimensions of this theme during our one-day long conference. From the big systemic questions that stem from the United Nations’ Sustainable development Goal 17 – Partnerships for the Goals all the way to the individual question of the relationship between humanistic leadership and collaborative attitudes we are looking forward to spending an exciting and stimulation day with our speakers and, most importantly, with you!

Come join us at the 2022 Tenth 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!


Please welcome with us outstanding speakers delivering impactful messages in service of our shared endeavor to strengthen the impact of business towards a more sustainable and more equitable planet.
