As we prepare to wind down and embrace the spirit of the festive season, one thing that has our team feeling extra merry is a cherished tradition that embodies the essence of who we are as a global community.

It's the season of giving back, making a difference, and nurturing the communities we call home - We Are Human Week has arrived at RG!

We Are Human is more than a favorite RG value; it's a guiding principle that teaches us the importance of kindness, empathy, and extending a helping hand, even when it's not directly tied to our roles. This approach to how we behave and what we believe shapes our culture and, in turn, propels us forward in fulfilling our mission. In this unique celebration, we unite as one global team to give back and celebrate the aspects that make us inherently human.

Read on to discover the exciting lineup of EPIC activities planned across our geos.
