FoRB and Business PosterThe European Platform against Religious Intolerance and Discrimination (EPRID) & Quê Me: Vietnam Committee on Human Rights in collaboration with the office of Ramon Tremosa i Balcells MEP are pleased to invite you to our event Religion, Business & Human Rights’

Freedom of Religion or Belief is close to the core of every human being, so that some have argued that religion should be a private matter. So what has the business world to do with this human right? More than you might think!

Every day, businesses around the world bring together people from different backgrounds and religions to accomplish a shared purpose – producing a product or service for others. At the same time, societies are becoming more religiously diverse. The Sustainable Development Goals 2030 include several references to diversity and inclusion, and it is widely accepted that diversity will increasingly impact employees and markets. Facilitating this diversity is one component of a company’s overall strategy to value their employees and increase their loyalty for the benefit of customers and shareholders.

Speakers:   Dr Brian Grim,  Dr. Ján Figel’,  Amarjit Singh,  Michael Wakelin,  Merete Bilde, EEAS
