“Reconciling what my faith expects of me with what my boss expects of me isn’t easy. But it’s worth it if it means I don’t have to leave my faith at the door at 9am.
Religion is a touchy subject. And workplaces have a way to go before they get the balance right between creating an environment that allows for personal expression, while still keeping things professional.
But as a Muslim, I don’t leave my faith at the door when I walk into work at 9am. My religion is part of the way I spend my time, express myself, and make decisions – so I need to find a way to reconcile the expectations of my faith with the expectations of my colleagues, clients, and bosses.”-
