Past ING Events
Yemeni Students Practice Public Speaking Skills
ING Deputy Director Ishaq Pathan delivered a public speaking workshop for Takalam (“speaking up” in Arabic), a summer leadership and digital literacy program for Yemeni, Arab, Muslim, and newcomer youth that uplifts voices for advocacy, representation, and civic engagement. For the workshop, Ishaq trained students at an Oakland high school who are creating a student film for the upcoming Arab Film Festival. They practiced public speaking skills using INGYouth resources, including our special presentation on the history of American Muslims. You can learn more about the youth speaker certification process at our site.
What Can Chaplains Do to Help Muslim Patients?
ING Content Manager Ameena Jandali delivered two seminar sessions to chaplains-in-training at the Chaplaincy Institute in Berkeley this week where participants explored Muslim traditions and practices as well as effective healthcare delivery for Muslim patients. Ameena described common issues that chaplains might encounter, such as end of life customs and rituals that may differ greatly from their own experiences.
