Interfaith Leadership for the
21st Century Workplace
Thursdays March 4, March 25, April 22, and May 6
11:30am-12:45pm (Community Time)
Did you know that many Muslims consider it taboo to shake hands with someone of a different gender?
Did you know that many Jews must miss work in the fall in order to fully observe the holiest days on their calendar?
Did you know that most Buddhists believe the mind must be as alert as possible at the time of death?
According to the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI), most Americans encounter religious diversity at work far more frequently than in other aspects of life. Therefore employers need employees who work effectively with people who hold views different from their own. Navigating religious diversity is critical to the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion yet it is an often-neglected dimension of that work.
To help become adequately prepared for the reality of religiously diverse workplaces students, faculty, and staff are invited to join national interfaith leader Eboo Patel, a member of the Biden-Harris interfaith team and the 2021 Fellow with the Lutheran Center, as he leads a four-session interactive seminar about interfaith leadership in the workplace and in all the places where we live out our vocations.
Participants who complete all components of the seminar can include this experience on their resumé! We will list the names of completed participants on a public website that can be directly linked in a resumé.
