Tanenbaum’s two-day Religious Diversity Symposium held at HNA Palisades Premier Conference Center from September 16th to 17th

NEW YORK — Tanenbaum | Center for Interreligious Understanding and Ted Childs LLC are holding their Fourth Annual Religious Diversity Symposium at HNA Premier Conference Center. The urgency to address religious diversity in the workplace continues to grow daily. The Religious Diversity Symposium is a unique opportunity to develop action orientated plans. This two-day, high-level, strategy oriented conference takes place in Palisades, New York and provides a spotlight on religious diversity and inclusion as an issue of importance to workplace culture and marketplace performance.

For the past three years, Tanenbaum and Ted Childs LLC have collaborated to host the Religious Diversity Symposium for Chief Diversity Officers and others working at high levels in diversity & inclusion, as well as human resources. The theme this year will be Capitalizing on Inclusion. By attending the Symposium, CDOs will be able to discuss how to respond to rising anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, explore what Gen Z employees are looking for in employers and their approach to religious diversity, and discover how the Corporate Religious Diversity Assessment (CRDA) from Tanenbaum and the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation, can help their organizations identify new ways to address religious diversity.

Speakers and moderators for the conference are leaders in the field of diversity, equity, and inclusion such as Carmen Smith, Walt Disney Imagineering; Robert P. Jones, PRRI; Nadine Augusta, Goldman Sachs; Sumreen Ahmad, Accenture; Amy Feinman, ADL; Michelle Gadsden-Williams, Accenture; Dr. Zahra Jamal, Rice University’s Boniuk Institute for Religious Tolerance; Tanguy de Belair, Vinci; Monica Diaz, Blue Cross and Blue Shield; David Casey, CVS Health; Ann-Isabel Previl, FINRA; Adam Rosen, Door of Clubs; Andrew Selesnick, Katonah-Lewisboro School District; Denise Breaux Soignet, University of Arkansas; and Sandy Cross, PGA.
