As the economy becomes increasingly global, our workforce becomes increasingly diverse. Diversity not only involves how people perceive themselves, but how they perceive others. Those perceptions affect their interactions and effectiveness. Today more than ever, organizational success and competitiveness depends on the ability to engage a multiplicity of viewpoints and perspectives.
The Accenture Interfaith group and Fordham Law School will be co-hosting an exciting event where we will be exploring the rewards and challenges of religious diversity in the workplace, and the benefits of encouraging people to bring their whole self to work. We will also review the legal underpinnings protecting this diversity and the issues that might arise. Followed by interactive exercises in which participants will be able to explore the difficult questions, and practice listening and dialogue skills that can foster constructive, respectful and open communication even across profound difference.
