CAIR-Chicago and OIS Midwest Hold Cultural Diversity Training at Bridgeview Courthouse
August 25, 2006

CAIR-Chicago and the Organization of Islamic Speakers Midwest (OISM) held Cultural Diversity Training Sessions at the Bridgeview Courthouse

CAIR-Chicago's Cultural Sensitivity Trainer Veronica Zapata and the Executive Director of OISM Tabassum A. Haleem presented six Cultural Diversity training sessions entitled “Working with the Arab-American and Muslim-American Communities” at the Bridgeview Courthouse District 5. This particular site was extremely important considering the fact that the Bridgeview community has a high number of Arab-American and Muslim-American residents.

The training sessions were held within three consecutive days, August 22 to 24, and were administered to approximately 90 employees of the courthouse. The positions of the employees ranged from clerks to managers. Prominent administrators also attended the training sessions to demonstrate to their employees the importance of understanding and interacting with their very diverse clientele.
