POSTPONED Understanding Islam
Understanding Islam (open to all)
Members of the Muslim community make up 0.2% of the Northern Ireland population but experience a disproportionate amount of prejudice. Media portrayal of the Islamic faith is often set only in the context of global unrest. This workshop describes how Islam is both a religion and a peaceful way of life, to allow people from a diverse society to understand the meaning of Islam and Muslims and to dispel common myths and misconceptions. It will be delivered by Brenda Skillen, NI Muslim Family Association. This is being run in partnership with our Black & Migrant Workers group and is open to all.
Thursday 14th May 6 – 9pm Belfast – UNISON Office
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
