Netwalking in the Great Outdoors
Eventbrite.co.uk
11am - 1pm


"One step at a time is good walking." Chinese proverb
Join us to stretch your legs over lunch and head outside for a spot of networking in the great outdoors. Walk, talk and network along the banks of the Kennet and Avon Canal with fellow business owners and entrepeneurs. It's the perfect opportunity to reflect on your business or career, bounce ideas about with others, generate new strategies, develop new opportunities and draw inspiration from nature with the added bonus increasing your daily step count. 
There will be a dedicated theme and the netwalk will be structured through a series of four questions to encourage conversation and explore different aspects of your business or career. Previous themes have included: Beyond Your Core Business, New Beginnings, Growth Mindset, The Social Media Maze and Change is the Only Constant. 
Netwalkers will meet in the square (near to Graze Bar and Grillstock restaurant) next to Bath Spa Rail Station at 11am. The 4km route will take approximately an hour and climbs gently with stunning views over the city of Bath. After the walk there's the opportunity to continue to talk and network at Cafe au Lait opposite Bath Spa Rail Station (refreshments not included in ticket price). 
Please be aware that there will be photos taken during the event that might be used for future advertising purposes. If you don't want to be photographed please let us know via email.

What's included in my ticket price? 
The netwalking ticket price includes a tasty culinary treat created by Masterchef Wafaa, event organisation, administration (5.90 GBP) and eventbrite booking fees (1.05 GBP). We are constantly reviewing our netwalking service and special "extras" to ensure each netwalk is a completely unqiue and enjoyable experience. Each netwalk is individually organised to avoid any joining or annual membership fees. 
What can/can't I bring to the event? 
Little reminder that an element of common sense should always be applied before heading outside with consideration to the British weather. It's strongly recommended to check the weather the evening before and bring welly boots, umbrella, warm jacket, scarf, hat and water bottle.
Remember to bring along your business cards to exchange contact details with other netwalkers.

RIBA South West (Bath) - Ethics in architecture: best practice for sourcing materials, products and people
Eventbrite.co.uk
2pm - 4:30pm


This seminar will provide you with an awareness of the tangible threats faced by you and your clients, and mechanisms that have been developed in order to address those threats. Irrespective of the size of your organisation, you will be equipped to understand strategies and tools you may develop yourself, take pragmatic measures, and provide informed support to your clients. 
The 21st Century presents a number of unprecedented and interrelated global challenges. Population growth, climate change, resource depletion, including energy and water, and food security are no longer the sole concern of governments or fragile communities. Instead, corporates now recognize that what were once viewed as inconsequential ‘externalities’ increasingly represent a clear threat to their current and future viability, particularly where those businesses operate extended and complex supply chains. These threats are no longer restricted solely to concerns of ‘reputational damage’, but are beginning to impact already narrow margins and challenge operational effectiveness. In addition, national and international bodies are introducing legislative burdens that require increasingly sophisticated responses from both national and international corporations.
Seminar sessions will be structured as follows:

The size of the challenge: case studies from such client sectors as retail, construction, and public procurement that highlight the reality of human rights issues in supply chains
The business rationale for ethical sourcing: legislative developments, the role and effectiveness of activist organisations, the commercial cost of poor governance, and its application to architects and their clients
Structure for success: implementing management systems, effective stakeholder engagement, collating and analysing appropriate data, root cause analysis, and pragmatic interventions

Bringing in the Bystander-Training programme for doctoral students
Eventbrite.co.uk
2:15pm - 4:15pm


The University of Bath, in partnership with the SU, have launched a 2-hour training programme to tackle sexual harassment and misconduct on and off campus. We have seen through the #NeverOK campaign, and the Universities UK taskforce report how prevalent sexual harassment is on University campuses. The #MeToo and #Time’sUp movements have shown us that this is not an issue occurring solely at Universities - it is pervasive in society. This engaging, thought-provoking training course is a significant part of The University of Bath's strategy to prevent sexual harassment.
We have all been in situations where we have witnessed something that made us feel uncomfortable....but we weren't quite sure what to do about it, or we thought about a great come-back on the way home! The Bringing In The Bystander programme® gives people tools to become effective and safe bystanders, whether that is in the moment, or having a quiet word at a more opportune time.
The programme was developed by the University of New Hampshire and has been delivered at Universities across the world, with significant research demonstrating its effectiveness at encouraging attitude change and increasing bystander behaviours. This session will include discussion of scenarios specific to doctoral study and can count towards your required hours of professional development. The programme will be delivered by two trainers from the Doctoral College.
***Please be aware that course looks at case studies of sexual violence, and may be triggering or upsetting***
If you have any questions about this session, please contact Eleanor Parker on e.parker@bath.ac.uk.

June Book Club!
Ladies of Bath Book/Wine Meetup
7:30pm - 11:59pm


Hi All,

Let's get this one straight in the diary!

So, this will be the eighth (!) Book club meet up. It's brilliant to have a consistent mix of, now, regulars as well as new people.
It's always a friendly group and a great atmosphere, which is brilliant!

For any newbies, those who couldn't make last night, or had to go before we (finally) decided on a book; We've chosen:

"The 100 year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared" - Jonas Jonasson
(Thanks Natalie B!)
I've read the synopsis and feel like i already love it!

It was published in 2009 and available in all forms.

We're sticking with Crystal Palace as it's a pretty good venue with plenty of space inside and outside.

We chatted a little last night about different things/ events we could do to tie in with the Book club. If anyone has any ideas of anything they'd like to add please feel free to post! I'm keen to do a lot more and welcome any suggestions!

As always- all are welcome!

I'll update closer to time. Any questions, please feel free to message!

Looking forward to seeing/ meeting you all!
