Dare to Overcome
August 23, 2021 at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT
An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating until August 24, 2021
Dare to Overcome (DTO) is the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation’s global intersectionality conference, highlighting the ways diverse communities support and reinforce one another to build more inclusive workplaces and peaceful societies.
Each day focuses on a different theme:
- Aug. 22: Social Justice, Equity and Religious Non-discrimination (featuring Google’s Barbara Phillips, UN’s Ahmed Shaheed, Empower Women Media, Free Yezidi Foundation and Kathy Ireland!)
- Aug. 23: Intersectionality Between Faith & Abilities Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) (featuring Yanagi Masahiro, Sign With Me; Justin Greene, Accenture Federal; Saqib Shaikh, Microsoft; and theologian Brian Brock!)
- Aug. 24: Business for Interfaith Understanding, Peace & Inclusion (featuring Covenantal Pluralism, Women CEOs IRF Roundtable, Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards, and virtual Dare to Overcome Choir!)
DTO is the global convening point for faith-and-belief employee resource groups (ERGs). Members of these ERGs will gather virtually in support of their colleagues around the world and share best practices.
The United Nations Global Compact and the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation are collaborators for DTO’s signature initiative, the Global Business & Interfaith Peace Award.
Main sponsors include American Airlines and the Templeton Religion Trust. DTO has been held in the host city of the Paralympic Games: Rio 2016, Seoul/PyeongChang 2018 and now Tokyo 2021, as well as virtually due to the pandemic.
