Humanistic Management SIG

This is a Special Interest Group (SIG) where members of AMED and friends can contribute to continuing discussions about better management, leadership and organisation through the lens of Humanistic Management.

Humanistic Management remains focused on the valuing of the human for their own sake.  It has a strong focus on human dignity, the essential value of the person and an ethic of care - human well-being is a goal and not a mechanism for performance.  

The education and development of practitioners, managers and leaders are fundamental to humanistic management principles in the hope of better governance and the growth of the human as a participative, creative, sustained and fulfilled member of world society.

This SIG has arisen following discussion between members of the Steering Group of the UK Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network:

Members of this Steering Group have been contributors to the Winter 2018 and Summer 2020 editions of e-O&P and they are:

Dr Christina Schwabenland, Steering Group Convenor, University of Bedford,

Dr Ilaria Boncori, University of Essex

Paul Harrison, Volunteer Co-ordinator Humanists in Business,

Dr Bob MacKenzie, AMED,

Dr Ruth Slater, freelance researcher,

(Humanistic Management SIG Convenor).

This SIG is new and in development, so please check back for updates and resources.

Arrangements for this free, online Conference are moving along very well; I was on a Zoom call yesterday afternoon with colleagues from the organising committee.  It is truly a global event!  There were participants from Columbia, Austria, Switzerland, China, Japan, Poland, Nigeria.  The conference theme is Unity in Diversity and there will be contributions about Leadership, Sustainable Development Goals, and Diversity.    The event promises to be both enlightening and stimulating.  

Please consider a short paper contribution to one of the three paper tracks (see the call for papers below).
