Allan Gray Centre for Values-based Leadership
The UCT Graduate School of Business (GSB) in association with the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation established the Centre in Values-based Leadership at the GSB in April 2011. Value Based Leadership focuses on the central role that values, meaning and purpose play in business.
The centre is the first of its kind in South Africa, and seeks to raise important sustainability and responsible practice issues to priority status in South Africa and beyond and is committed to exploring new ways of doing business, based on purpose, sustainability and responsible practices and is the first of its kind in South Africa. The Centre builds on a long-time relationship between the UCT GSB and the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation, and represents a major step forward in addressing these critical contemporary business issues.
The Allan Gray Centre for Values-based Leadership will consist of a senior professor, a senior lecturer and two PhD bursaries. Research will follow an agenda decided on by both UCT GSB and the Foundation, with the main goal being to explore new ways of doing business that will be good for business, good for society and good for the environment.
