Explore Islamophobia – Part 2
5 September 2022
15:00 - 16:00 CET
Having explored Islamophobia, its roots, and expressions in the DMeetUp back in July, there was an overwhelming consensus that a follow-up should take place in which we address how to challenge it.
(The presentation from the first session is here….)
So, in our session on the 5th of September, at 3 p.m. CET, with Neil Payne, an expert in the Middle East and a “Bloody Good Trainer” in all things Intercultural we continue the journey to
Explore Islamophobia. Part two.
We will be focusing specifically on how to tackle Islamophobia personally and professionally in our schools, training rooms, organizations, and workplaces.
Our hope is to collectively produce some simple and effective guidelines for us, interculturalists, on how to identify and deal with Islamophobia.
Neil Payne grew up in Kuwait to an English father and Iranian mother. After reading sociology at university in the UK, he returned to warmer climes to work in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan, Yemen, and the UAE in his 20s. Upon returning to London to complete an M.A. in Middle Eastern studies, he had the bright idea of starting a translation company, which was acquired 10 years later, allowing him to now focus on his intercultural work. Much of his time today is split between country-specific training (Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the UAE) and business skills (communication, teams, CX, management, sales). He brings 23 years experience of in studying Islam and 17 years experience of training in the intercultural field.
