Global Voice magazine special issue: CoBS 10 Years Anniversary, Faculty & Students together
Welcome to the this very special issue of the Council on Business & Society Global Voice magazine #18.
Special, firstly in that it celebrates the 10 years of the CoBS, a visionary alliance of leading schools of business and management created in 2011 dedicated to responsible leadership education at the crossroads of business, society and the planet.
The Council now counts 7 member schools, regularly working alongside partners such as UN PRME, GBSN, GRLI and corporates such as the ESG consulting firm Ksapa for a better, fairer, educated and greener world.
Special, secondly, in that this June 21st issue, as is tradition, features the winner and finalist articles of our international student CSR article competition 2021 alongside those of faculty. As you read, you’ll no doubt become aware of this year’s exceptional student talent – in terms of both writing skills, argumentation, research and insight into the crucial issues of our times.
These include sustainability, responsible innovation, the circular economy, impact investment, ethical leadership, post-pandemic downsizing, tech for good, the power of the community, entrepreneurship, the awareness of women’s role in business and society, gender equality, and finally innovative solutions to save jobs during times of crisis.
And third, a special feature of this CoBS 10 Years issue, Top Reads – the most widely read favourites of the last five years among our faculty, research-based articles. These touch on the topics of social and environmental accounting, corporate governance and corporate social (i)responsibility, talent management, HR and artificial intelligence, mixing older and younger generations at work, and a deep dive into the lives of women entrepreneurs.
