The Role of Social Action
This is a unique workshop to co-create practical social action that puts people back into the heart of work and business.
One of the major themes to emerge from this community’s Big Tent event last October was the importance of connection and interaction between different people and communities, which not only helps with social cohesion and access to opportunities but also develops and enriches individuals, ultimately adding value to organisations and society. Social action, such as through volunteering and campaigning, can help turn these goals into reality.
The strong desire to move on from words into real action has been made clear, and this event will be the next step in shaping a social action movement that will help us all as individuals to take practical and much needed on-the-ground action.
The CIPD proudly runs a number of large-scale volunteering programmes (see Steps Ahead Mentoring and Enterprise Advisers). By bringing together the Future of Work is Human community with these volunteers, we hope to harness a collaborative power that will truly transform our communities and the wider world of work.
This is a great opportunity to help shape the future, catch up on insights, hear from challenging speakers as well as network with like-minded activists.
There are only a limited number of places so please register below or contact Vicky Dmochowski by Monday, 10 April to book your place.
