Thank you for your interest in the work life webinar: Religious Diversity in the Workplace at MSU
The webinar occurred on Zoom and was recorded. This is a very important webinar to support diversity at MSU and your interest is key to that goal. Panelists were asked to speak to the religious experience of Spartans and others in the community so that we can learn from each other. That's the main goal: Learn from and with each other. Some general topics included prayer schedules, holidays, locations to places of worship, and other cultural elements (norms, beliefs, values) that intersect with work.
We do our best to make it clear that one individual's experience is that person's experience and does not represent an entire community. This is a time to learn, share, and respect each other.
While the panel was small this time, we are absolutely thrilled and thankful for their involvement. We welcome others. Perhaps others will join in next time!
