Responsible Organizations in the Global Context Conference

Georgetown University's Center for Intercultural Education & Development (CIED) is proud to partner with the LAREQUOI Research Center for Management of the University of Versailles (France) to bring together researchers and thought leaders in responsible leadership and management for a two-day conference at the beautiful Georgetown University.
