Consulting

About Our Consulting

Background

Interfaith America builds on over 15 years of consulting experience in higher education to bring expertise in religious diversity to workplace settings and beyond.

Consulting Strategy

Interfaith America offers both capacity-building sessions and longer-term consultations designed to support institutions seeking to strengthen interfaith skill-sets across their teams and make interfaith engagement one of their strategic priorities.

Why Consulting

Too often religion is viewed as a problem to be solved. At Interfaith America, we know that religious diversity is a strength, not a weakness. We work with institutional leaders to identify assets and opportunities for growth for engaging religious diversity across their organizations. Using case studies, research, and best practices, we guide institutional partners to set organization-wide priorities and develop goal-oriented initiatives.

INSPIRATION & AWARENESS

IA sets the stage for engaging religious diversity in your workplace by examininghow companies have addressed religion in the workplace — both pitfalls and successes — and exploring how to constructively engage religious diversity at work and in the marketplace.

INTERFAITH ERG DESIGN & SUPPORT

IA supports organizational leaders who want to start an Interfaith Employee Resource Group by offering design guidance and resources rooted in best practices in the field. IA also helps established Interfaith ERGs deepen their impact through professional development opportunities for leadership teams and by facilitating high-quality programming including panel discussions and keynotes.

STRATEGY & TRAINING

IA develops customized education and training modules to help companies achieve their diversity, equity, and inclusion goals. Contact Megan Johnson at [email protected] to learn about our professional development workshops, training development and delivery, strategic planning, and consulting.

Interfaith America

Why Engage Religion and Worldview?

Good for Business

Americans encounter more religious diversity at work than in any other sphere of life, yet religion is too often left out of the diversity conversation. Supporting employees’ religious identities and meeting diverse consumers’ needs is good for business — and for America.

Good for Campus

Across higher education, campus leaders are grappling with complex issues of religious and worldview diversity, inclusion, conflict, and cooperation. Overlooking those issues won’t make them go away — we collaborate to help your institution plan for high-impact interfaith initiatives and train interfaith leaders.
