Registration Deadline: MON. 10/30/23
Join Jaylani Hussein of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) MN for a proactive diversity training that bridges the gap of misunderstanding and provides resources to employers, attorneys, community leaders and educators.
This single diversity training will cover three different sections.
1. First, the presentation will open with a brief introduction on how to effectively work with Muslim learners by bringing awareness and eliminating a potential bias. This session will also include an interactive polling exercise. Participants will answer questions to both learn about Muslim culture, while also learning ideas about unconscious bias.
2. The second segment highlights Muslim demographics worldwide, in the United States and in Minnesota. This section includes an in depth explanation of the religion and cultural norms, including keywords, holidays, and customs held in Muslim culture, and concludes with a discussion on how Muslims practice their beliefs, emphasizing the continuum of diversity of practice within the religion.
3. The third part of this presentation will include how to provide religious accommodations in an educational setting. It emphasizes:
a) the main practices for which school staff should expect a request for accommodation
b) practices to be mindful of when interacting with Muslim learners
