For Kina Bank, this program highlights three of our core values; reflection, togetherness and honesty. It provides participants the opportunity to reflect on information received, to challenge themselves to be better, take ownership and translate opportunities into action.
Togetherness, to connect with others who share the same values and goals to achieve shared success. To listen to others with the intent to understand. Last but not the least, honesty. Honesty to use opportunities and resources in the best interest of the communities’ participants live and work in.
