Student World Dialogue on Global responsible leadership and integrity
On October, 4th and 5th 2011, 125 worldwide students from top business and engineering schools were brought together in Stuttgart, Germany to attend an event on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) hosted by Daimler. The event was supported by the United Nations Global Compact (a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption) and the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (network of businesses and academic institutions aiming to develop the “next generation of responsible leaders”). Thus, students representing their country during this two day World Dialogue were selected upon their experience and commitment to be part of the next generation of responsible leaders.
The World Dialogue’s agenda consisted of speeches of highly renowned business men (including Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG/ Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars) and academics in the field of corporate social responsibility; discussions between students and professionals on management and strategic issues; and workshops during which students debated on CSR strategies. The World Dialogue was also the opportunity for those 125 students living in countries as diversified as France, Brazil, United States, Pakistan, China, Australia, etc. to share their experiences, opinions and ambitions and to build a worldwide community of future responsible leaders.
