our organizational partners

RMLE Unconferences are both unique and successful because of the people who contribute to them. Beyond our engaged and engaging participant contributors, the underlying foundation for these events comes from our four organizational sponsors, our host institutions, and the dedicated individuals and teams who represent each of them. We are grateful for their continued support and many varied contributions.

Journal of Management Education

The Journal of Management Education's (JME) editorial team welcomes contributions from management educators who seek to reflect on their professional practice and to engage readers in an exploration of what or how to teach in order for students to learn and practice effective management. Editors from JME have been a part of the RMLE Unconference since its inception back in 2013, with Jon Billsberry helping to organize the first event and designing our first website. From 2014-2020, Jeanie Forray and Kathy Lund Dean actively supported the Unconference, attending most and ensuring that there are always some of their amazing editorial team and editorial board members at every event. Starting in 2021, we welcome the support and partnership of the new JME co-editors, Marissa Edwards and Jen Leigh. Our Unconferences wouldn't be the same without them.

Management Learning

Management Learning (ML), the 'Journal for Critical, Reflexive Scholarship on Organisation and Learning', is an international journal publishing original theoretical, empirical and exploratory articles on learning and knowing in management and organizations. Management Learning provides a unique forum for critical inquiry, innovative ideas, and dialogue. Starting with Eugene Sadler-Smith's attendance at our second RMLE Unconference at the Copenhagen Business School, followed by support from other ML editors including Ann Cunliffe, Emma Bell, and Todd Bridgman, the ML team is a significant partner for our RMLE Unconferences. We love the depth and breadth they bring to these events.

Bond Business School

Bond University was the location of our inaugural RMLE Unconference in 2013. As the only ongoing tertiary institutional sponsor for these events, Bond University has a special place in the history of the RMLE Unconference. It is also the home of Amy Kenworthy, chair of our management team, and George Hrivnak, our event moderator - two people who affectionately call these events "their work babies" (their real babies attend most of our events and serve as our RMLE mascots).

Copenhagen Business School

Copenhagen Business School (CBS) was the home of our second RMLE Unconference in 2014. The team there has continued to support this event in numerous ways over the years and has always been a strong presence at our Unconferences. This is no surprise given the fact that CBS has a highly diverse student and faculty base, with a school-wide emphasis on examining business in a wider social, political and cultural context. Faculty at CBS aim to contribute to economic and societal development through new knowledge with a view to illuminating societal challenges... and this they do. We can't imagine our events without them.

Haskayne School of Business

We are thrilled to announce that the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Canada is our RMLE host institution for the upcoming 2023 Unconference. The incredible faculty member team at Haskayne has been involved as participant contributors in every Unconference since 2015. In fact, we regularly and warmly joke that the RMLE is a mini-Haskayne faculty research incubator. The enthusiasm, passion for all things learning and teaching, innovative thinking and contributions, and spectacular engagement of every Haskayne participant contributor to our events has been a hallmark of our Unconferences. It is a truly perfect fit for us to hold our next event at their beautiful campus in Calgary - the largest city in the western Canadian province of Alberta.
