Virtual Q-Connections Meetings for Members
The weekly online Q-Connections meeting started as a response to the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020. These regular Zoom sessions have greatly enriched the life of Q&B this year by fostering new relationships between members and providing a forum for the exchange of ideas, support and networking.
Tuesday Q-Connections Meeting (From Tuesday 12 January)
12.30 - 13.30 GMT
Our Tuesday get together aims to provide 'Q value' with topics for discussion. These sessions allow plenty of space for introductions and checking in. Programmed discussions are led by the coordinator of our development working group. It’s a relaxed, non-pressured atmosphere and a great place to further your Quaker business ethics knowledge and practice.
Topics for January
The next cycle of workshops is on the topic of Community in the Workplace.
January 19 Week 1 - What is Community in the Workplace?
January 26 Week 2 - Behaving in Community - Your experience
February 2 Week 3 - Promoting Community behaviour in the workplace
February 9 Week 4 - What do We (and Q&B), Do about it?
We meet on Tuesday lunchtimes at 12:30 - bring your lunch!
We follow the Quaker discipline of not interrupting and allowing a pause for reflection after each contribution. Everyone is expected to make a constructive contribution. Find out more: Quaker Business Method
Friday Wind Down
