‘Three mottos to guide our approach to equality, diversity & inclusion’
Thu 7 Apr, 1300-1630: online via Zoom, £35 pp

Interfaith Scotland course considering diversity in its widest sense, considering three models which provide insight on our experience of difference.  We consider: the role of the dominant identity and the idea of ‘human neutral’, why some people ignore or deny the disadvantages that others experience; and how to respond to misunderstandings or offence.  To book: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/interfaith-scotland-16811469249  or contact Jamie Spurway on jamie@interfaithscotland.org

‘Interpreting culture – improving cross-cultural communication’
Thu 11 Aug, 1000-1300: online via Zoom, £35 pp

Interfaith Scotland course on cultural diversity.  Our cultural background has a profound influence on each of us. It shapes our behaviour, values and beliefs. It even affects our thought processes and how we perceive the world.  In this course we explore how culture forms a lens through which we interpret each other’s behaviour and learn how to improve our inter-cultural communication.

Tue 13 Sep, 1000-1200: online via Zoom, £25 pp

Interfaith Scotland course exploring the impact of our inner narratives – our meaning-making – on our interactions and relationships. We will consider ways we can become more aware of our readings as they form, and more cautious about their accuracy. We will also discuss tools for more authentic conversations.  To book: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/interfaith-scotland-16811469249 or contact Jamie Spurway on jamie@interfaithscotland.org
