Global Voice #15 
An old thirst, a new desire
September 29th, 2020
Global Voice issue 15, September 2020: Business education, COVID and education, healthcare in Brazil, ESSEC Together, CSR, management control systems, ethics, social enterprise

100 pages of insights on CSR, leadership, management, healthcare, business education, entrepreneurship and social enterprise from the Council's 7 leading schools of business and management + guests 

An old thirst, a new desire

The thirst has been there for thousands of years, maybe since Humankind began to walk on two feet – the thirst for new horizons, meeting others, bartering, trading, doing business and improving one's comfort. Since the 1960s, this thirst has constantly evolved with an awareness that business and human initiative are linked to our environment and to others, including the wildlife with whom we share a common planet and family of things. The COVID pandemic has heightened this. And a new desire accompanies that old thirst. A desire to evolve further and build an economic system that shares more equally, protects, rewards merit, and brings back our age-old though sometimes forgotten respect for others and nature. 

This issue of Global Voice, the first of the new academic year, is a high-impact number with revamped graphics, a powerful Editorial, and 15 insight articles from 28 faculty and practitioners in three sections: Education & Society, Management & Leadership, and Entrepreneurship & Social Enterprise.
