THE ROUND UP
JANUARY 2023 | ISSUE 1
Happy New Year! We want to kick off the new year by wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2023 from the Unity Steering Committee.
We're super excited for the year ahead and everything that we've planned to share with the network & wider business. The past couple of years, our focus has been on building a network that all employees can link into, sharing content and getting events & meetings up and running. For 2023, the focus is all about helping to push the business forward and ensuring that you are part of the journey.
James Nyamuda, Unity at Next Chair, kicks off the first of our A Moment With Series for 2023.
One of the 3 C's of Unity is Champion. Watch this video of James talking about Unity, his experiences and why this employee led network is so important for people at Next!
At Unity, we think it's absolutely vital to be helping to support and amplify ALL voices at Next, regardless of your race or cultural background and this series is a perfect way for us to help you do that.
Our 'A Moment With' series is a platform for employees from across the business to talk to the network about who they are, their stories or their cultures in a safe and supportive environment.
The aim? To learn more about the diversity at Next and how we understand, celebeate and champion it to continue to be a Next that it proud together.
January 27th 2023 is Holocaust Memorial Day, a time where we reflect on the thousands of people who lost their lives to genocide.
As a joint message, the Staff Networks of Pride, Unity and Able pledge to remember those affected, contemplate the theme of 'ordinary' and how it is ordinary people who face hate and discrimination every day.
