Join us online on Thursday 26th October(1700-1800 Paris/1600-1700 London/1100-1200 Montreal) to discuss connections between social and environmental accounting education and institutional priorities. Panelists Clément Boyer (AgroParisTech and Paris Dauphine, France), Sheila Killian (Limerick, Ireland), and Hendrik Vollmer (Warwick, UK) will share insights from their experiences in developing new pedagogical approaches, degree programmes and wider leadership in cross-institutional initiatives. Time will be available for an open discussion where you will have the chance to ask the panelists questions.

Hendrik Vollmer, Reader in Accounting, Warwick Business School.
I am interested in understanding accounting as a social practice pervasive across organisations, businesses and governments, public and private settings, professions and industries, local communities and activists as well as global discourses and institutions. I am particularly keen on investigating accounting change under disruptive conditions and the potential of accounting to address planetary matters of ecological concern.
I joined Warwick Business School in 2020 from the University of Leicester, where I had worked since 2015. Prior to coming to the UK, I had worked for sixteen years at Bielefeld University in Germany. I am a member of the Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research (CSEAR), on the editorial boards of Accounting, Organizations and Society and Zeitschrift für Soziologie, and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
