Reflection on Faith in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Location: Salon B (Lower Level)
For many of us in social movement spaces, achieving true equity in society is our north star. There is a renewed effort around expanding DEI work and although we have a long way to go on living up to that ideal on both race and gender discrimination, at least most of us know what those terms mean. But what about religion? Take this opportunity to consider deeply how faith and religion intersect with DEI. We’ll consider what happens when Muslims aren’t allowed time to pray or Sikhs and Jews are asked to take off their turbans and kippot. We’ll also reflect on the basic fundamentals of religious literacy as a first step towards including faith in the DEI conversation.
