(WASHINGTON, D.C., 9/21/07) – A representative of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) yesterday took part in a roundtable discussion on religion in the workplace sponsored by DiversityInc at its headquarters in Newark, N.J.

CAIR Civil Rights Manager Khadija Athman joined religious leaders and other representatives of minority advocacy groups to discuss reasonable accommodation of religious practice in the workplace. Topics included how to address antagonism toward specific groups and how corporations can be leaders in creating workplaces where people of all religious beliefs can resolve their differences.

The roundtable will be featured in DiversityInc magazine and videotape excerpts will be on DiversityInc.com.

CAIR, America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group, has 33 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
