Show Racism the Red Card in the Workplace: Islamophobia

Show Racism the Red Card in the Workplace: Islamophobia

August 26, 2021, 12.00 – 13.00

Online, Crowdcast

The recent Scotland's Islamophobia report by Peter Hopkins (Newcastle University) for the Scottish Parliament Cross Party Group on Tackling Islamophobia highlighted that Islamophobia is experienced by Muslims and those misrecognised to be Muslims in workplaces and employment across Scotland.

75% of Muslims say that Islamophobia is a regular or everyday issue in Scottish society. 78% of Muslim respondents say that Islamophobia is getting worse, and this rises to 82% of Muslim respondents with a Glasgow postcode.

Islamophobia is rooted in racism.

This webinar in partnership with Show Racism the Red Card looks at how Islamophobia manifests and how unions can work with the campaign to tackle this form of racism.
