EarthDiverse offers a series of Professional Development Seminars on Religious Diversity and raising awareness of religious literacy:



EarthDiverse is pleased to announce a series of Professional Development Training Seminars and Workshops to organisations and businesses designed to inform potential clients of issues of religious literacy and raising awareness of the beliefs and practices of other faith and belief traditions.

Our interactive seminars and workshops are designed to get your staff and employees cognisant of and involved with people of other faith and belief traditions, in order to better help them interact with members of other religions, as well as with those with no-religion.

These Professional Development & Training Seminars are suitable for anyone. Potential target audiences for training might include:

  • Health Care professionals (e.g. doctors, nurses, ambulance workers, psychiatrists, psychologists);
  • Clergy and other religious practitioners who may wish to raise their awareness of other religions and the various practices associated with them;
  • Teachers and educators at all levels (e.g. early childhood education, and primary, secondary and tertiary schools)
  • Social workers;
  • Journalists;
  • Police and police workers;
  • Chaplains at various public institutions (hospitals, universities, military)
  • Judiciary (e.g. judges, clerks);
  • Public servants;

What people are saying:

  • “Staff at New Zealand Red Cross have benefited from 4 Religious Diversity training sessions in Hamilton. Our diverse team working in the refugee resettlement area have found these sessions very interactive and relevant to the work we do. The practical activities that Todd facilitated helped us all unpack knowledge and make connections with our daily work. Knowing about different religions definitely enhances the quality of any intercultural communication. Amazing workshops!” —Silvia Dancose, Acting National Migration Manager-North, and Refugee Programme Team Leader for Hamilton, Red Cross
