Be the change you want to see in the world - Mahatma Gandhi 


Interested in learning more about the highly relevant topic of the growing population of Muslims  today?

This timely topic is one that continues to be talked about in the media, as well as in professional and casual conversations.  Muslims represent about 1/4 of the world's human population, yet it is a group that is severely misunderstood in America.  Even if professionals don't have any Muslims in their schools or organizations, this topic lends itself to overall cultural competence and social justice in a way that relates to us all in current matters today. In order to decrease the many great divides that ignorance causes, we must gain an increased understanding of the unknown to become greater allies of social justice.

Join us as we learn more about this vast population as it relates to us as Americans as well as to all of humanity.  Huda Essa uses her personal experiences including those as an educator, consultant and avid world traveler to provide audiences with a unique, quality experience.  This engaging and thought-provoking session is guaranteed to have you walk away with an increased critical consciousness, intercultural maturity and practical strategies that you can own and teach to others.   This is definitely a session you won’t want to miss!
