University of Cape Town: Call for proposals for the Responsible Leadership Reimagined Conference

The Responsible Leadership Reimagined Conference seeks to address important questions about responsible leadership and encourages further research to advance the discussion on responsible leadership in Africa.

The conference will take place from 16 to 18 March 2022 in a hybrid format – in person at Spier Conference Centre in Stellenbosch, as well as online.

Some of the broader conference themes will address the following questions:

How do we make sense of the concept of responsible leadership globally, as well as in the African context?
What are the implications of the COVID‑19 pandemic for the responsible leadership discourse?
What is the relationship between responsible leadership and social innovation?
How can organisations develop and nurture responsible leaders internally?
How can we establish a dialogue between sectors, co-create best practices and shape pathways and actions towards responsible leadership?
Call for proposals

Scholars and practitioners are encouraged to submit proposals to this peer‑reviewed conference. They can explore the issues theoretically and empirically, assess responsible leadership and its relation to individual ethical decision‑making, showcase best responsible business practice (in for‑profit, non‑profit, hybrid, international organisations and government), discuss stakeholder engagement, or community partnerships, and even cross‑sector collaboration.

The detailed call for papers and proposals is available on the conference website. Abstract and presentation submissions are due by 31 October 2021, with final papers due 31 January 2022.
