EDI Big Conversation 2023 - Religion


As a key input to developing the CDI’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy, we are running a series of workshops covering key diversity themes. Each workshop will include a keynote talk then discussions among participants to draw out the key barriers and issues affecting each community, as well as generating ideas for how the CDI can work to address them. 

This session covers all aspects of religion in career development, including life as a careers practitioner with a religious affiliation or working with clients from different religious communities. We would like to hear how religion has impacted your experience as a careers professional and explore how the CDI and other agencies can create an inclusive culture. 

The workshop will be hosted by Ifza Shakoor, EDI Associate at the CDI along with the keynote speaker who is yet to be confirmed. The workshop is intended to be an open, participatory and engaging session to gain insight directly from people with lived experience. 

The workshop is free and open to anyone working in career development – whether a CDI member or not.
