Date: 10:00 AM, 21st Feb 2018

Many Muslim women in Britain face a “triple penalty” impacting on their job prospects – being women, being from an ethnic minority and being Muslim.

‘Inspiring Aspirations’, the national employability project at Amina Muslim Women’s Resource Centre invites you to our ‘Challenging Perceptions Breaking Barriers for Muslim Women In Scotland’ event. Building on the success and feedback from our first ever agency conference in 2017, this event promises thought provoking discussions, interactive workshops and impetus to generate change. Ideal for front-line staff, service providers, equalities champions and those seeking to make Scotland a fair and inclusive place to live and work.

Featuring keynote speaker James Ferguson, award-winning journalist, author and a noted expert on Islamic international affairs, freelance theatre artist Suzi Morrice and an array of local Muslim women sharing their insight, first hand experience and wealth of expertise, this exciting event will bring together organisations, agencies and support services, along with members of society’s most ‘economically disadvantaged’ community to explore;

The rich diversity of Scotland’s Muslim community.

The barriers experienced by Muslim women when seeking paid employment and income generation.

Examples of best practice in providing front-line service provision.

Future-proofing employability support.

Providing a platform for our clients and service users to have their thoughts, ideas and feelings heard, ‘Challenging Perceptions’ promises a day of dialogue, insight and reflection.
