With a diverse workforce comes diverse religious practices. This webinar will explore some starting steps to becoming a more religiously inclusive workplace which can engender and stimulate a climate of pluralism.

Three Learning Outcomes:

  1. Studies show that religious minorities in Canada are uncomfortable speaking up at work. We will explore the Canadian context around religion, diversity, and the workplace, to understand the costs to organizations and employees as well as the opportunities.
  2. To learn how the Western concept of “religion” distorts the way we see traditions whose heritage is not in the West and how this can create a sense of unwelcome for employees. The implications here go beyond work into our schools and neighbourhoods.
  3. To consider practical steps you can take to move towards religious literacy and religious inclusion in your workplace.
