How does it work?
Members are given support both online through exclusive content and resources and offline at events and workshops.
The main component of the network are the Salt workshops which are held three times a year.
Workshops provide time and space for members to reflect on their business, in light of their faith, and to work together to develop ideas and strategies for achieving their pledges.
To equip our members to address these challenges, our workshops explore key topics such as using Business as a Force for Good and Developing a Values-Based Business Model.
- Workshops: In conversation with Christian Aid, partner organisations and members, explore business solutions and strategies that will increase your ability to live out your faith in the workplace. There are 3 Salt workshops held every year lasting, on average, for 3 hours. At each workshop members are encouraged to take on discipleship challenges or pledges looking at how they will lead change in their own business, provoke a community of change across faith and business networks and resource change by supporting entrepreneurs in the global south.
- Exclusive content: Receive relevant content and tools from leading thinkers from business, faith and development sectors both online and at workshops.
- Digital community: Join the conversation by connecting and engaging with likeminded business leaders across the UK. Remain up to date with articles, videos and guest blogs that will continue to contribute to your thinking about your identity, responsibility and ability as a business leader.
- Annual event: A pivotal event, drawing together business people from across the UK with keynote speakers and strategists to focus on faith, business and development in the 21st Century.
- Strategic giving: Membership is free, but Salt members are encouraged to support our work financially. This can either be via individual donation, corporate donation or by fundraising. Opportunities will be available to learn about some of Christian Aid's programmatic work and see first-hand the work we are doing with entrepreneurs in the global south.
Becoming a member
The network is open to anyone who owns a business or is in a senior management position within a commercial organisation.
It is for leaders who want to join a movement to learn more about business and sustainable development through the lens of faith.
We are taking a pilot approach to growing and shaping the network in conjunction with local business leaders.
Help us shape the direction of a network that wants to demonstrate the power of faith and business in action.
