UCKG's groups embrace the call to take action and inspire change every day

The annual International Nelson Mandela Day celebrated on Madiba's birthday on 18 July, is more than a celebration of his legendary life and legacy, but a global initiative to honour his values and his dedication to the service of humanity.

The concept was introduced to create a cultural shift and reduce the 'gap' between senior executives and staff. The committee, Junior ExecJoe, might be the only committee where there are more pairs of hipster jeans than there are formal suits, but it's been building fantastic awareness and inspiring new ideas within the agency.
