The month of Ramadan is set to begin tomorrow.
It’s a period of fasting, prayer, reflection, and community, and is marked by Muslims around the world.
Last year we held a colleague-led session about Ramadan for our managers. They learnt how to be supportive, helpful, and encouraging of their Muslim colleagues during this time.
This year we extended the invite to all colleagues in a lunch and learn session.
Presented by our Diversity and Inclusion Network, Muslim colleagues from across our offices came together today to share the meaning of Ramadan, practices over the month, and how they celebrate their commitment once it comes to an end.
Colleagues also had the chance to pick our panel’s brain about the celebration, not before tucking into some traditional snacks eaten around Ramadan.
The session was insightful, informative, and a wonderful way to learn more about the culture and religion of our fellow colleagues.
