High restrictions on freedom of religion and belief affect 80 percent of the world’s population. Limitations on people of faith (and no faith) is growing around the globe. This leads to lack of morale and innovation. Creative entrepreneurship increases when people don’t fear backlash. Discover how to use your magazine to promote mutual respect among different backgrounds, traditions, and world views.

In this free online workshop, Shirin Taber, director of the Middle East Women’s Leadership Network and Empower Women Media, will discuss how media advocates can promote human rights and freedom of belief that can lead to thriving communities.

A good accompaniment to this live workshop is Shirin’s e-course “Live What You Believe.” You can register for her e-course for free by using this scholarship code: LWYB2020.
