economy and management”
Opole, 25 November 2016 (5th edition)

Conference programme assumptions


Ladies and gentleman, colleagues, participants of previous editions,

On 25th November 2016 we shall continue passionate exchange of views started by participants few years ago in Raciborz (the first edition gathered over 80 speakers from Poland and abroad) and in Opole (second and additional gathered around 50 speakers). As a result, we have issued 6 monographs distributed among the speakers on the conference day. Program assumptions stay the same as in the four previous editions.
Responsible management, business and economy play and import ant, culturally-active role. Civil society development in Poland as well as in other countries requires action on the lever of units (ethical leadership), organisations (CSR), country as well as on global level ( such as Global Compact - the initiative of former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan).
Initiatives from the field of business organisation development and a business with a „human face”, social self-organisation as well as developing small and more consistent social structures, are performed all over the world, and their final effect is dependable on the enthusiasm and integration of efforts of people from the world of business and science, workers from different organisations, consumers and promoters of social politics. The aim of this conference is to integrate scientist from different scientific communities into companies and organisations which focus on problems connected with promotion of responsible business, management and consumerism.

We suggest to exchanging ideas on the following subjects:

  • Ethical education, business ethics education.
  • Ethical programmes in organisation.
  • Ethics of human resources management and ethical leadership.
  • Ethics of marketing. advertising, PR.
  • Ethics of traditional and new media.
  • Ethics of economics and finance.
  • Cultural determinants of security in micro, mezo and macro scale.
  • Cultural determinants of wealth creation and business ethics. Cross-cultural management.
  • Consumers rights and obligations, work of consumer organisations, consumer education.
  • Social policy (demographic, housing) of a country vs. business society development.
  • Standards for organisations responsibility - SA 8000, AA1000, ISO 26000 and others.
  • Philosophy of wealth creation.
  • Religion vs. business.
  • Other subjects suggested by participants.

The programme of this conference will cover plenary, as well as sessions in sections.
