Engagement in the GRLI is open to companies, universities, business schools, transnational networks, NGOs and independent individual actors.

We have been, and remain, a community driven by the energy, ambitions, dreams and dedication of active partners globally. Our network of partnerships and collaborative work on a global scale is already changing the way management educators and businesses around the world operate.

Already, we are witnessing the emergence of a group of people with awareness and attitudes of corporate global responsibility. This portends the development of a critical mass with genuinely global view and the skills and appetite to change things for the better.

This worldwide group of companies and learning institutions forms the base of the GRLI community, and is committed to engaging on collaborative initiatives and sharing learning from their own actions to drive global responsibility.
