November Newsletter 

This month’s Newsletter looks at tackling the denial that surrounds Islamophobia, reflects on the historic appointment of Rishi Sunak as Prime Minister, and celebrates the hard-work of organisations who have invested in building inclusive cultures. 

Islamophobia Awareness Month:
Tackling Denial

Islamophobia Awareness Month aims to showcase the positive contributions of Muslims to society as well as raise awareness of the issue of Islamophobia. Islamophobia is a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived Muslimness. 

In 2020 45% of hate crimes in England and Wales were directed toward Muslims.

69% of Muslim workers have suffered some form of Islamophobia while at work.

In 2021, almost 4 in 10 Muslim Healthcare Professionals received verbal abuse from colleagues around their faith.

Including MuslimsIncluding Diverse Cultures
Our ‘Including Muslims’ e-learning acts as a fantastic introduction to the Islamic faith for all employees. The course summarises some of the overarching principles of Islam, before emphasising the sometimes very different ways that people observe their religion as Muslims.This fascinating course provides insight into a whole range of cultures and faiths, including Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and the Baháʼí Faith. The course explores the different ways that people interpret their cultures and fosters a comfortable environment to learn about cultural difference.
