Subject: Register for GBSN Beyond 2021: Virtual Conference Reimagined

Business schools are ideally placed to be the nexus between government, business and civil society in shaping a collective response to our most critical challenges. At GBSN Beyond, we hope to collectively explore multi-sector collaboration in developing talent needed for society.

GBSN Beyond features three parallel track experiences during the month of October, leading up to a 3-day virtual conference, November 15-17. These tracks engage Learners, Educators, and Leaders. The virtual conference will offer a program of keynotes, panel discussions, lightning talks, networking activities, and more, that generally focus on four themes: humanitarian logistics, climate change, healthcare, and human rights. GBSN Beyond will bring together members of academia, business, government, and civil society to collectively explore new models, discuss challenges and develop solutions. Let’s translate current experiences into lessons for sustainable development.

Registration fees cover admission to the 3-day conference as well as participation in any of the track-related activities and sessions.
