WHERE CHANGE HAPPENS!
Workstreams are where change happens!
Each workstream starts with a barrier to change and a group of people who are up against it. We outline the groups objectives and invite our members to join. We collectively agree on the terms of reference and outline if there are any additions.
With a wide range of sub-groups, there’s no better time to share your expertise to help change the state of the industry
When becoming a member you can apply to be part of a range of workstreams and sub-groups so that you can effectively deliver maximum value to your group.
