Humane Entrepreneurship in a Dynamic World

Conference Event in Conjunction with MSMEs Day

 

Sunday, June 27, 2021

9:00 AM – 12:30 PM (EDT)

About the Conference

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals seem to be the most united and comprehensive guide in which our global community might simultaneously survive and heal its inequalities that have been plaguing our world. Resulting from historical injustices, the world is far from equal. As mentioned earlier in this series, the concept of Humane Entrepreneurship (HumEnt), regarded on a large scale, poses our only survival mechanism to enable the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, one grand mistake that we are collectively recreating in regards to sustainable change and promotion of the SDGs is that we forget that we as human leaders, employees, businesses, etc. must change ourselves for the SDGs to work.

Humane Entrepreneurship has never been of greater importance. That is why on the Global MSMEs Day, ICSB plans to host this Humane Entrepreneurship event that gathers leading researchers to gather and discuss the ways in which we can continue to progress while uplifting human, social, and ecological good.

The Influence of Religion on the Humane Orientation of Entrepreneurs

This study examines the impact of religion on the humane orientation of entrepreneurs. We examined to what extent HumEnt manifests among entrepreneurs across the four religious groups in India, and whether a specific religion influences different dimensions of HumEnt. Our results indicate that HumEnt matters in entrepreneurial ventures, and across industries. We found deep connections between HumEnt and religion, with entrepreneurs indicating a pervasive influence of religion on all dimensions of the HumEnt construct.
