Grenoble Ecole de Management invited Elaine, as a visiting lecturer, to run an interactive workshop with MBA students taking the sustainability specialisation, to increase awareness about the UN SDGs to business environments.
The purpose was to enable the MBA students to have a tool for engaging colleagues in discussing and discovering how to implement sustainability solutions in their workplaces or entrepreneurial ventures.
Elaine used an innovation idea challenge to introduce the MBA students from global locations and a variety of manufacturing sectors, to the UN SDGs.
This created a safe space to explore what achieving the SDGs at a local level would mean to their teams and business operations in reality; and gave insights into the systems-thinking and of impact across value chains when implementing solutions.
