From the evening of Saturday, 2 April 2022, Muslims around the world, as well as in Australia, begin to observe Ramadan. People will be abstaining from food and drink during the daylight for 30 consecutive days, until the evening of Sunday, 1 May 2022, when Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan.
In this webinar, we will talk with guests from different Muslim communities to learn more about Muslim culture and history, discover what Ramadan and Eid traditions mean to them, and to discuss the challenges and opportunities they’ve faced when observing Ramadan in the workplace.
