The Safety Futures Initiative
'Get to Know You' Events
On the 1st of July 2021, the Safety Futures Initiative (SFI) held their first virtual engagements to showcase the group, its aims, and gather the input of prospective members to understand the elements that they would like to see from the SFI. There were two events held over Zoom; one at lunchtime and one in the evening to maximise availability.
Each event began with an ice breaker activity to learn more about the attendees in the session, followed by an overview of the SFI and then the floor was opened to questions and comments from the delegates as part of a brainstorming session. The brainstorming was a successful activity, and a number of great suggestions were put forward – from mentoring schemes to technical and career workshops. The suggestions either reinforced the need for existing ideas or gave the SFI new food for thought to take forward.
Similar events also took place in November with further proposals for events and activities that the group is focusing on in 2022. The slides from the November event can be found here: Download slides.
As a result of the positive feedback following these ‘Get to Know You’ events, the SFI will be holding regular sessions for new and existing SFI members to network and discuss any aspect of the SFI in a welcoming and safe environment. Dates for 2023 are still TBC, but if you would like to join the next event please email Zoe Garstang or Nikita Johnson for further details.
Activities within the SFI are picking up. The current projects include developing a series of podcasts on career and technical topics, as well as working on our first workshop to support members in developing technical and/or soft skills. The SFI is also working closely with the SCSC Steering Group to develop the club’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy.
