WORKPLACE

Even the most well-intentioned and comprehensive Diversity Equity and Inclusion programs sometimes leave religion out of the conversation. Our western culture teaches us that religion is private and that the politest thing we can do is wish someone a happy holiday and leave them in peace to practice their beliefs.

 

The reality is that 39% of religious minorities are afraid to speak up at work and our goal of accommodation often isn’t enough to create a culture of inclusion, connection and celebration. So where can organizations start?

 

For more than 20 years Encounter has been helping people have respectful, insightful conversations about religion. And we can help your workplace do the same.

Brian is a fantastic speaker. His knowledge of these topics were impressive. I love how he shares the information in such a open and honest way. Religion can be a high-conflict topic of discussion. Brian removed those barriers.
