Join ADRhub.com for a special webinar on religous diversity and information that applies specifically to mediators and other conflict resolution specialists. With the 10th anniversary of 9/11 being only three days after the webinar, the event holds special meaning on raising religious awareness and knowledge, especially as each of the four panelist are based in New York City.
The four panelists will speak from their perspective of their particular faith including the Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim and Sikh faiths giving conflict resolution professionals and practitioners important knowledge that applies directly to their work. This includes: information on core beliefs, clothing, physical contact and more.
The panelists include:
Benkong Shi (Grace Gratitude Temple)
Arvind Kohli (United Skihs)
Anindita Bhaumik (Hindu Society of North America, NYPD Clergy Liaison)
