The purpose of the ‘Yarning Circle’ is to make a positive IMPACT on our society through learning, collaboration and growth.
Each month, our Yarning Circle hosts a Forum, where we have a Panel of Speakers, followed by a #bbgthinktank and the ‘unpacking’ of the #bbgthinktank.
The #bbgthinktank, comprises of smaller groups of 5-7 individuals where we will explore how we can implement the learnings from this panel into our own organisations. These insights will be ‘unpacked’ and discussed.
Our members are a diverse group that intersects all members of society, who have a common goal to connect, collaborate and contribute on a continuous basis to build a “cohesive community” through collaboration, learning and growth.
To encourage the core value of an organisation to focus on the important value of “Inclusion” (the Act) in the workplace, we have created the RAPID Awards.
The RAPID Awards (RAPID stands for Reconciliation Action Plan Inclusion and Diversity) is aimed at honouring employees for being Inclusive and living the S.T.R.E.E.T values:
S – Safety
T – Trust
R – Respect & Responsibility
E – Energy & passion
E – Empathy
T – Team first
