Connecting Society through Community Conversations Give & Gain 2017
 
 
Overview

Business needs resilient and prosperous communities in order to succeed and grow. One cannot succeed without the other. Communities are at the heart of everything we do in responsible business. 
 
A key way for businesses to connect with their communities is through employee volunteering; sharing time, skills and expertise to address key social challenges, and in return developing knowledge and insights of the perceptions and values of communities amongst employees. 
 
Give & Gain 2017 Give & Gain is more than just a day. Businesses engage with and support their communities throughout the year. 
 
In 2017, Give & Gain will celebrate the on-going support provided by businesses through employee volunteers across the year. Businesses will be able to Give & Gain at a time that is most suitable to them to effectively address the needs of their community in a way that is relevant to their business. 
 
The highlight of this will be a showcase of good employee volunteering on 28 April as part of Responsible Business Week, an annual awareness week run by Business in the Community to inspire and challenge more businesses to take action, which in turn creates positive change in society. 
 
Community Conversations bring together local businesses, community organisations and government representatives to explore the issues affecting their communities and how they can build a connected society together. A Community Conversation is a cross-sector networking event, encouraging fruitful conversations and tri-party collaboration. 
 
Community Challenge
 
Five local community organisations have been invited to present a current challenge they are facing. Participants will be divided into break-out sessions to unpack a community challenge and to develop collaborative solutions as a group. 
 
This session will provide an opportunity for participants to work as part of a cross-sector team, sharing their skills and knowledge to provide real-time support to local communities and develop their own knowledge.
