Be part of our Journey of Exploration into Diversity , Equity and Inclusion

Each month our  Yarning Circle hosts  a Forum, where we have a Panel Of Speakers, Followed by a #bbgthinktank and the “unpacking of the #bbgthinktank”

The purpose of the “YarningCircle” is to make a positive IMPACT  on our society through “learning, collaboration and growth.”

Our members are a diverse group that intersects all members of society, who have a common goal to connect, collaborate and contribute on a continuous basis to build a “cohesive community”  through collaboration, learning and growth.

To encourage the core value of an Organisation to focus on the important value of “Inclusion” (the Act) in the workplace, we have created the RAPID Awards.

The RAPID Awards (RAPID stands for Reconciliation Action Plan Inclusion and Diversity) is aimed at honouring employees for being Inclusive and living  the TREATS values
  • Team First
  • Respect
  • Energy and Enthusiasm  - being passionate about what they do
  • Attitude  and Adventurous - making a difference - going above and beyond 
  • Trust - which is a non negotiable in building a collaborative community 
  • Safety - making there fellow workers feel safe / so they can excel and explore
