Professional Development in Religious Diversity



The Religious Diversity Centre (RDC) offers Professional Development workshops/training seminars to organisations, associations and businesses wishing to help their members and/or employees become more familiar with matters of religious diversity.

Each Professional Development workshop/seminar comprises a number of interactive modules which can be tailored to the particular context and needs of the client organisation. Participants become cognisant of and involved with people of faith and belief traditions other than their own, so that they can be more relaxed and positive when working in groups and teams of people diverse in culture and in religion.

This could be a single 3-5 hour workshop, a full day or a two day workshop.

These workshops are for organisations who work with the general public and have a genuine desire to raise their awareness of religious literacy, or to help their employees work more effectively with the public and clients of the various faith and belief traditions represented in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Participants have reported they learned new things about their colleagues which would help them work better together. Case studies of ‘religious discrimination’ (or maybe not) can lead to determining some of the challenges due to differences within and between religions. They help participants to see better how their own perspectives both challenged others, and could be challenged by others, in a safe, friendly and helpful way.
