Webinar on Multi-faith Inclusion at Work

Date: Monday 25 May 2020
Time: 3:00pm to 4:30pm AEST

Cisco Webex

DCA and the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner Kristen Hilton will explore multi-faith inclusion at work.

In multi-faith contemporary Australia, customers and employees are increasingly expecting products, services and workplaces to be inclusive of faith-related perspectives. And while we have more people who identify with a faith other than Christianity than ever before, the number of people who don’t identify with any faith has almost doubled.

At our next Diversity Leadership Program event in partnership with the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, we will investigate how workplaces can be inclusive of religious diversity and balance religious expression with other human rights.

We will hear from the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner Kristen Hilton alongside an esteemed guest panel moderated by DCA's CEO,  Lisa Annese, who will examine:

  • What constitutes freedom of religious expression at work
  • How to balance religious expression with other human rights
  • How to adopt an inclusion rather than legal accommodation approach to religious inclusion 
  • The status of the religious freedoms legislation.

Speakers will include:

  1. Rev Lin Surch, Founder and Interfaith Minister, Beyond Gender
  2. Ryan Burke, Head of Inclusion & Diversity at Commonwealth Bank
  3. Kristen Hilton, Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner
  4. Rabbi Ralph Genende OAM, Caulfield Hebrew Congregation Inc.

We encourage DCA members to join us for this conversation about multi-faith inclusion at work.
