In a majority of General Assemblies, GRLI has involved students in the discussions. A virtual and potentially physical forum driven and managed by student champions will play a powerful role in engaging students and junior managers from GRLI partner institutions and beyond, across continents, in a debate on concepts of Globally Responsible Leadership and their integration in the curricula and business practices. Once mobilized, the graduating students would then form the emerging community of responsible young leaders.
- student and graduate communities at business schools
- young managers in companies
- alumni of business schools, both from GRLI partners and elsewhere
who function as “GRLI watchers” by contributing to the GRLI’s work and commenting on it

The following GRLI partner schools have active Ambassador communities:
Keeping in mind that the GRLI Ambassadors is in essence student driven and will produce tangible results, here are some proposals:
