Royal Roads University’s Diversity Action Group is very excited to present the first of several events this year; a Multi-Faith Panel Discussion. Considering many recent global events, we thought it would be timely to provide a forum to facilitate religious and cultural literacy and mutual respect. 

What are some misconceptions or stereotypes and how do faith communities deal with these distortions? What values are shared with other faiths? How do adherents live their faith?

Moderator: Dr. Hassan Wafai from Royal Roads University

Panelists:            

  • Rabbi Harry Brechner from Congregation Emanu-El
  • Reverend Michelle Slater from Oak Bay United Church
  • Imam Ismail Nur from Masjid Al-Imam
  • Dr. Sudhakar Ganti from Victoria Hindu Temple

What: Multi-Faith Panel Discussion

Date: Tuesday, January 19

Location: Centre for Dialogue, 4th Floor, Learning and Innovation Centre

Time: Noon to 1 p.m. – Panel Discussion (feel free to bring your lunch), 1:00 to 1:30 p.m. – Mingle with light refreshments 

For those unable to attend in person, the event will be live streamed.

All RRU staff, faculty, students are encouraged to attend! The event is also open to the general public.

Diversity enriches community. Royal Roads University is committed to appreciating and celebrating the diversity of students, faculty, and staff. We strive to increase understanding and acceptance of each other, thereby making us more compassionate human beings and strengthening the fabric of our communities.
