Creating Inclusive Environments for Diverse Religious, Spiritual, and Secular Worldviews
Friday, January 14, 10:00 am to 11:30 am EST
When you hear the word “diversity”, what comes to mind? If you’re like most people, religion wasn’t the first thought or even the second one at that. We live in a world, work jobs, attend classes, and are a part of organizations that are religiously diverse. And yet, this identity is often forgotten or labeled as too taboo to talk about with others. In order to be effective leaders, influencers, and DEI practitioners, we have to critically examine how we are cultivating communities that both value and engage diverse religious, spiritual, and secular (RSS) worldviews. Join us for this interactive workshop as we explore how RSS worldviews shape our experiences and the spaces that we occupy.
- Examine one’s own religious, spiritual, secular (RSS) worldview
- Explore how RSS worldviews have shaped one’s own and other’s experiences
- Brainstorm strategies to engage diverse RSS worldviews to cultivate inclusive communities
