Dallas: Religious Diversity in Workplaces

10 Oct, 2018

You are invited to attend a groundbreaking breakfast meeting with a select group of diversity/inclusion influencers and a spectrum of faith leaders, at 7am, Friday, October 26 at the Doubletree Dallas on North Central Expressway.

Attendees will hear eyewitness reports about the effects of opening the workplace to diverse religious expression, including positive impact on:

  • › Employee recruitment, engagement and retention
  • › Culture of ethics and integrity
  • › Product and service quality
  • › Creativity, inventiveness and productivity
  • › Dissolution of unwarranted and toxic fears and prejudices

They will also hear a crisp business case for action, including:

  • › Demographic trends in religious affiliation
  • › The fact that, for increasing numbers of people, their religious belief defines the core› principles by which they live and work
  • › The importance of freeing employees to connect their faith to their everyday life, so they can bring their whole selves to work
  • › Increasing claims of workplace religious discrimination and other negative effects when companies stifle faith-related communications

Lastly, speakers will introduce:

  • › Some policies and best practices for accommodation and encouragement of relevant religious expression at work (including a corporate pledge), and
  • › Available tailored seminars/how-to resources

The breakfast is sponsored by the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation (RFBF).  Among others, speakers will include the Foundation’s President, Brian Grim.
