High Level UK Meeting to Explore Positive Role of Faith and Belief at Work

By Brian Grim

On Monday at No. 10 Downing Street, office of British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, I met with Myles Stacey OBE, Special Adviser to the Prime Minister. We discussed the upcoming high level Faith and Work summit to be hosted at No. 10 on July 10.

The Faith in Work summit will bring together senior leaders from the worlds of government, faith and business, to explore the positive role and impact of religion and belief in the UK workplace.

A growing number of businesses are discovering that wellbeing, productivity, and profitability often improve significantly when employers acknowledge the importance of faith and belief among their workforce and encourage employees to bring their whole selves to work.

Along these lines, this high-level meeting will explore proven models and future strategies to enhance the place of faith in work across the UK.

Additionally, on Monday, I participated in the World Economic Forum’s Civil Society Community Connect session. It was hosted by Klaus Schwab, Founder and Chairman of the World Economic Forum. (Also see Davos 2018 video.)

These come on the heels of speaking last week at Salesforce Faithforce and Microsoft Interfaith Connection events.

I’m arriving in India on Wednesday to work on preparations for our Dare to Overcome conference in India.

Stay tuned for updates!
