There is undeniable power when communities come together as a force for good. When they create the space for its members to share experiences, cheer each other on, empower and elevate one another. Connections, a sense of belonging and psychological safety can be transformational at an individual and societal level. When we come together in a safe, open environment we can flourish, functioning at our best and creating sustainable impact.
This session will offer inspirational advice and insights into how we can all drive The Power of Together, how we can get involved in communities of change agents and what the ingredients for thriving communities are.
Join us for our third 2022 webinar part of the Let’s talk about…series, to hear from inspiring professionals who are empowering communities of entrepreneurs to elevate each other for everyone’s benefit. Learn from their experiences of what makes a thriving community. Share your insights and networks. (Re)Discover your community.
The “Let’s Talk About…” webinar series started in 2020 is designed to drive powerful conversations, share stories, and provide inspirational advice from women and male allies at the heart of the discussion.
ONS Neighbourhood comparison tool
The Office for National Statistics has released a digital tool that lets you explore and compare neighbourhoods in England and Wales by different topics, including how many people hold passports, migration within the UK and household size. The interactive map uses the 2021 census data that has been released so far, with updates expected from the 2021 census to create an interactive map – more census data is also due to be released on 29 November. (Info borrowed from the ODI Newsletter, we thought it was interesting)
