Name of event or initiative:Workout with WIB - Spin
Brief overview of the event or initiative:

Our members were invited to attend a WIB-hosted Spin class at the UC Rec Centre and breakfast afterwards on Tuesday the 10th of August.

What were the aims of the event or initiative?

One of our UC Women in Business values is 'community', so our Spin Workout event was intended to bring our WIB community together, and build connections between our members. We encouraged our members to meet new people/make new friends in a friendly environment. This was also an opportunity for them to try something new!

How did you make it happen?

We booked the UC Rec Centre Spin Studio for Tuesday morning, and our treasurer Jenna (who is a Spin instructor there) lead the class. We were able to book the UCE workspace in Rehua through the UCE team to host our post-class breakfast. Our breakfast food sponsors included Fix and Fogg, and Pure Delish,
This was a low-cost event, so no further sponsorship was required.

How did you make it better?

We have never run this event before, but we took on considerations from our other Workout with WIB events, such as F45 with WIB. This gave us a good understanding of how many participants we were likely to get, how much food to provide, what time of day our WIB members were likely to prefer, etc.

How did you show your commitment to sustainability?

For the post-class breakfast, we encouraged members to bring their own bowls. We also were conscious to provide biodegradable bowls and cutlery to use during the breakfast.
