About the Humanistic Management Network Poland Chapter
The Poland Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network is focused on developing and disseminating knowledge for Humanistic Management with an emphasis on culture and media sectors and contemporary challenges as climate crisis or inequalities.
Therefore the chapter builds bridges to cultural institutions, media enterprises, NGOs and businesses to strengthen the position of Humanistic Management as an academic field and a management practice. The Polish chapter also aims to develop the methodology for Humanistic Management and boost its position in the academic training of managers – the Faculty of Management and Social Communication at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków was the first in Poland to confer academic titles in Humanistic Management. The mission of the Poland chapter is being accomplished through various activities, including seminars, lectures, publications or informal meetings. For example in 2014 the Institute of Culture at the Jagiellonian University organized the groundbreaking conference Zarzadzanie humanistyczne: zakres, metody, paradygmaty / Humanistic Management: scope, methods, paradigms. But most importantly we try to create an engaged community of people: involving students, scholars, practitioners, activists, policy makers, and entrepreneurs. Although we may come from different backgrounds we share the idea of a humanistic approach towards organizations.
