  • Collection of Short Impact Investing Scenario Cases

    We have compiled a paper containing a collection of eleven short Impact Investing scenario cases. The papers are researched and written by the participants of our Master's Level course on Impact Investing which took place in the Contextual Studies at the University of St. Gallen in the Spring Semester of 2015. Investments aiming to generate a positive social and / or environmental impact as well as some financial return have become known as impact investments over recent years and have gained substantial momentum in both the finance and social entrepreneurship community. In this course participants researched a suitable investment opportunity for an impact investor and then developed a structure for a fictitious investment. This investment structure was presented at length during the course and student teams also delivered short papers on their investment proposal which are compiled in this document.

  • Addressing Poverty and Inequality through Business

    This contribution to the magazine of London based Philanthropy Impact is focused on addressing poverty and inequality through business. It opens with one of the cornerstones in the debate on distributional justice, that the moral development of a society can be measured by how it treats its weakest members thus arguing that poverty and inequality are indeed defining challenges of humanity. On these grounds the article continues outlining the hallmarks of a human centered management paradigm embracing the positive power of business to address poverty and inequality. It concludes that it is an enormous privilege that we are given the opportunity to rid the world of extreme poverty and allow for everyone to live in dignity as a member of our global community. Let's make sure not to waste it. To read the article please follow this link Read More

  • Experience the Organisational Awakening

    A group of organizations and most importantly, of curios people, decided to look for new ways of organizational arrangement to interact and collectively seek solutions to the challenges of sustainability that we are currently facing within them. It was an invitation to participants to explore together important questions through dialogical methodology of the World Café. It was an experience to live how organizations can invent new organizational cultures that are aligned with the level of human development that we are dreaming—and seeing in some humanisticly managed corporations, and also toencourage new ways of working within more powerful, touching and meaningful organizational scenarios.#despertandoorganizaciones Read More

For December 2015 the Australia and New Zealand Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network together with the Leadership Lab of the University of Adelaide invite you to discuss and reflect on this year's events under the framing of high integrity organizations. This workshop will take place on the 10th of December 2015.

In this final discussion for the year our aim is to reveal what issues we believe are significant for organisations seeking to be more equitable, respectful and enriching. Well-being in the workplace need not be an elusive goal and the aim of this session is twofold; first to reflect on topics discussed this year and also to highlight topics for future sessions next year. Those topics will provide opportunities to explore the challenges and imperatives for responsible, sustainable and successful human-centric organisations.

This month the Australia and New Zealand Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network together with the Leadership Lab of the University of Adelaide invite you to discuss the idea of heedfulness, in juxtaposition to last months conversation about mindfulness.  This workshop will take place on the 12th of November 2015.

There is currently a strong ground-swell of interest in and research about mindfulness – so what, then, is the value of looking at the synonymous ‘heedful’ and ‘heedfulness’? The principal driver behind the adoption of the word and concept of heedfulness is a shift from looking inward and situating oneself very much and mindfully in the immediate context of being ‘where you are’ and ‘in the world’ to investing that same level of paying attention on purpose to others, what they are doing, and how you and they are inter-related.
