Aug. 22 Overview: Social Justice, Equity and Religious Non-discrimination


Brian  Grim

 

We are honored to have my colleague and friend, Dr. Ahmed Shaheed, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief, give a global overview of the challenges facing his mandate the first day of Dare to Overcome, which coincides with the United Nations-designated International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief. Barbara Phillips will then provide poignant comments on why these challenges matter to business people and recent steps that she has done at Google to address the problem of religious discrimination and persecution. Next, we have the tremendous opportunity to see the top 5 award-winning short films (4 minutes each) produced by women filmmakers from around the world demonstrating how women’s rights and freedom of belief are inseparable, and when these rights are respected, that’s good for societies and economies. Finally, we can directly help Yezidi victims of the ISIS genocide through a charity auction with the support of super model turned super mogul, Kathy Ireland. 100% of the proceeds going to support the Free Yezidi Foundation's Women's Bakery and Enterprise Training Center.

Barbara  Phillips

 

The UN General Assembly, in its resolution A/RES/73/296, designated 22 August as the International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief recognizing the importance of providing victims of acts of violence based on religion or belief and members of their families with appropriate support and assistance in accordance with applicable law.

Women's Empowerment Global Religious Freedom & Business Film Festival


Shirin  Taber

 

Can women succeed where men cannot? Yes, and the winner's of this year's film competition demonstrate how women’s rights and freedom of belief are inseparable -- and when these rights are respected, that's good for societies and economies. This is the Empower Women Media's and the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation's 4th annual International Film Competition and Festival.

“Freedom of religion or belief gives a woman the right to choose for herself what she believes in and how she wants to live her life according to those beliefs,” explains Mariya Dostzadah Goodbrake, last year’s Grand Prize winner. The competition offers $5,000 in prize money, and the winning 3-minute films will screen before world-class CEOs, UN partners and NGO leaders in-person in Tokyo (due to covid, only for residents of Japan) and virtually through Dare to Overcome.

Helping Yezidi Women Recover from the Ongoing Effects of the ISIS Genocide: Learn How


Pari  Ibrahim

 

In August 2014, ISIS militants swept through the Sinjar region of northern Iraq in a deliberate attempt to annihilate the Yezidis. ISIS employed brutal tactics including mass executions, rape, forced conscription of child soldiers, and sexual enslavement of young women.The immediate impact of ISIS’ devastation was that thousands of Yezidis were killed and thousands more were taken captive and sold as sex slaves in ISIS markets.

To this day, almost 3,000 Yezidi women and children remain missing and almost 300,000 Yezidis still live in displacement camps in northern Iraq. Yezidi women in Khanke Camp are in acute need of vocational training and educational support.

To meet this need, The Free Yezidi Foundation (FYF) currently provides vocational training such as sewing, knitting, language and numeracy, women’s rights, and ICT classes to Yezidi IDPs through its Women’s Center, located inside the camp. Join us to learn how you can help.

How faith diversity networks can better support abilities/disabilities diversity networks


Sarah  Gosiewska

 

This session explores how faith and abilities identities "intersect," and what faith employee resource groups (ERGs) can do to better support people with varying abilities. Coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989, the term intersectionality recognizes that individuals experience discrimination based on multiple and intersecting identities, including race, religion, ethnicity, migrant status, sexual identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, or socioeconomic status. These individual characteristics “intersect” with one another and overlap contributing to unique experiences and may expose individuals to double or even triple discrimination grounds, making individuals more vulnerable in the workplace and in society.

Aug. 24 Overview: Business for Interfaith Understanding, Peace & Inclusion


Brian  Grim

 

Welcome to the THIRD Day of Dare to Overcome! We are so excited that you are joining us for a series of 2-hour-long, interactive, virtual encounters with people from across the world who are advancing a culture of engagement characterized by relationships of mutual respect and neighborly solidarity among diverse religious and abilities communities. Today’s theme is Business for Interfaith Understanding, Peace & Inclusion. Today, we begin with a report from Tokyo on the eve of the Paralympic Games and learn the amazing story of our equipping seminars for people with disabilities. We then have a keynote presentation on Covenantal Pluralism as a promising and practical paradigm for corporations to have a new set of conceptual tools to take their diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives to the next level. We then move on to our signature event, 2021 Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards, a collaborative initiative by the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation with the the UN Global Compact: At the start of the Awards, we’ll hear from the newly launched Women's CEO IRF Roundtable and American Airlines, the official airline of Dare to Overcome and our sponsor. After the presentation of Awards, Medalists will share their experiences and inspiration for innovative ways to advance interfaith understanding and peace through business. We will be joined by a panel of past medalists and hear reactions from business school students around the world.

Update from Tokyo!


Kenichi  Shinagawa

 

Join us for an update on the in-person events that happened in Tokyo on the eve of the Paralympic Games. In Tokyo, Dare to Overcome begins with service. In the evening of August 22nd and in the morning of 23rd, volunteers from Japanese community organizations will provide equipping seminars for people with disabilities. In Japan, those with disabilities face not only the challenges of working conditions, but also the social stigma of being a problem to the society. The Japanese word for people with disabilities “Shogaisha” actually includes a Chinese character meaning “harmful”. Therefore, the event aims to empower people with disabilities and change the society to become more inclusive and appreciative of diversity. Under the theme of “Everybody has the freedom to dream their future”, the two day event will be hosted by Sophia University at their renowned International Conference Hall in central Tokyo and will be broadcast via the web so that people can participate from everywhere. The seminar will address topics such as self identity and empowerment, getting jobs and dealing with workplace issues, and self care and stress management. Introducing ERGs (Employee Resource Groups) for disabilities is another focus of this seminar, as the international DTO brings the global ERG movement to Asia and Japan. ERGs are not well known in Japanese context at this point and there is much room to improve in workplaces for people with disabilities. The ERG movement also has the potential to change the perceptions of Japanese society by leveraging influences of global corporations that are actively promoting ERGs. We are also planning to follow up the event with a series of online seminars to continue to empower and equip those with disabilities.

Corporate Religious Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Initiatives Are Covenantal Pluralism In Action


Kent  Johnson, J.D.

 

The modern corporate workplace is a most interesting example of covenantal pluralism in practice. This is in large part because the business world is placing greater emphasis on including faith and beliefs as part of their diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. Understanding the business imperative of allowing people to bring their “whole selves” to work, including their faith, has led America’s best companies to expand their DEI initiatives to include faith-oriented Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) and other faith-friendly initiatives such as corporate chaplains. Such companies include American Airlines, American Express, Texas Instruments, Intel, Target, Tyson Foods, Coca-Cola Consolidated, Google, Apple, Salesforce, Accenture, PayPal and Walmart. The commonalities between DEI and covenantal pluralism emerge because DEI initiatives are a recognition that to be competitive in today’s and tomorrow’s marketplaces, companies need to tap into the full identity, strength and potential of their employees by including religion as a full-fledged part of their DEI commitments. What are the commonalities? Join us to learn more about Covenantal Pluralism and its relationship to not only business but many other fields including foreign affairs.

Congratulations from the 2016 Gold Medalist


Y.W.  Junardy

 

Yaya Winarno “Y.W.” Junardy (Indonesia) is the Gold medalist from the 2016 Global Business & Interfaith Peace Prize. Indonesia is a multi-religious country where in the past, massive riots fell along racial, ethnic and religious lines, often directed at businesses and business owners, many of whom were minorities. The threat of violence is exacerbated by poverty. A pressing problem is that millions of couples from all faiths are unable to wed due to costs and bureaucracy, which leaves their children without legal status hindering their future opportunities, such as education and work. Y. W. Junardy, head of a large Indonesian investment company, uses his business know-how to solve the problem. Working with businesses, the government and religions, he facilitates weddings and receptions for thousands at a time presided over by ministers of each faith. The couples and their children immediately gain legal status and real hope for the future.

Global Business & Interfaith Peace Award - Khalid Khowshnaw


Khalid  Khowshnaw

 

Following the sectarian conflicts in Iraq, many families were forced to flee the country in hopes of seeking a safe place to openly practice their faith and beliefs. In response, Khalid Khowshnaw founded the Hemn Group which combats any form of discrimination including that of race, religion, ethnicity, or sectarian groups. The Hemn Group promotes inclusion of differing nationalities working alongside one another, oftentimes sharing in each other’s celebrations and feasts. They are also credited for providing jobs for countless Christians, Muslims, and Yazidi in areas that are safe to practice their faith and beliefs free of discrimination and facilitatates the free practice of worship. This also creates an inclusive, sustainable economy, an antidote to sectarian conflict.
