‘We’ve also challenged them all to be brave and to convene a meeting with the senior leaders of their businesses to show them the output of their analysis,’ she said. ‘We’ve asked the groups to come back and talk about what that experience felt like engaging their senior leaders, what lessons they each learned doing that in order to try to influence their organisations from within to start thinking about these things. She added that the 30 participants, who KIT wants to help develop into the Island’s ‘next gen’ leaders, have also been tasked with holding meetings with their bosses to share their results. ‘That’s the impact we want #BuildBackBetter to have. We want real-life applicability in their organisations. We’re really excited about meet-up two – which is on 8 July – to get their group presentations back about the experiences they had.’
‘The first one was for them to go away, and using a matrix we gave them, map their organisations’ current alignment with the UN sustainable development goals. KIT chief executive Emiko Caerlewy-Smith said: ‘Every meet-up, the participants will be set an assignment and they will be divided into five groups of six to do it.
‘Then they need to get together in their groups and create a presentation about the experience of undertaking that research and that work, what challenges they met and what they found easier than they thought they would.’ The first meeting of the annual programme was held recently and included a panel session featuring Climate Change Assembly chairwoman-convenor Emelita Robbins and Durrell chief executive Leslie Dickie, as well as a screening of Netflix documentary ‘Our Planet: Too Big to fail’.
The #BuildBackBetter campaign, which is sponsored by Rathbone International Management, is being provided free-of-charge by KIT Consulting. More detail on the programme and its participants will follow soon in the JEP. Mrs Caerlewy-Smith said that participants would be asked to build on the work of their first task when they are set their next assignment.
