The Topics for your articles

If you’re a student currently studying in one of the above schools, passionate about responsible leadership, CSR, CSV, sustainability, responsible finance, diversity and inclusion, and social entrepreneurship, then the invitation is open to write and submit a 1,000 to 2,000-word article in English in MS Word format.

Your article must be based on one of the following:

  • We citizens are clients, and sometimes we are also investors. We want good products, produced ethically and at an affordable price. At the same time, we also want our investments to be profitable. How to achieve an acceptable compromise? 

  • How has the pandemic given more importance to the role of women in business and society? 

  • How can firms achieve "technology for good" in business practice?

  • In the present context, characterized by interconnectivity and the need for economic reactivation, how might companies leverage the power of community to advance the alignment of their business objectives with the wellbeing of humans and the planet?

  • How can leaders manœuvre the Covid challenge: Save the company or save the employees?

  • How can organizations leverage their innovative capabilities to reduce their environmental impact?

  • The dream and reality of normalization bias: difference and similarity across region, industry, and individual value recognition.
