JOIN US AND START A SOCIAL JUSTICE FIRE

IAL'S SOCIAL RESPONISBILITY PROGRAMME

Intended to start a social justice fire, our programme of training, knowledge exchange and networking, delivered in partnership by Consort Strategy and the Institute of Association Leadership, is designed to equip organisations with the expertise for supporting delivery of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

START A SOCIAL JUSTICE FIRE

To mark the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement, the Institute of Association Leadership, in partnership with Consort Strategy, proudly launched IGNITE: a social purpose training and knowledge exchange programme, the focus of which is to explore and iterate the pivotal role that professional associations, membership bodies, learned societies, and professional institutes can play in advancing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2015 the International Chamber of Commerce and UN Global Impact published a report on the contributions that business associations and sector initiatives can make to global sustainable development.  Arguably, in the years since publication this report, the association sector has not yet realised its potential and yet, as you know the imperatives to tackle climate change, sustainable development, and social justice are increasingly urgent. Given the reach and influence that business associations can wield in terms of enhancing business policy, education and practice, we recognise our role in providing them with pragmatic and realistic ideas and solutions so that they in turn can support their members and fulfil their potential as societal catalysts for change.
