"Islamophobia is rooted in racism and is a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived Muslimness."
- APPG on British Muslims
Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM) is giving us the opportunity to recognise the positive contributions of Muslims and improve our workplace morale.
It is important that we highlight and stamp out islamophobia, racism and bullying in the workplace and recognise it as a problem in society in general.
Discrimination is highlighted in the Social Mobility Report as problematic in the recruitment process and it founds that young people of the Muslim faith are being “held back from reaching their full potential at every stage of their lives”.
Denying islamophobia is seen throughout the political and social space of the UK and so IAM are #tacklingdenial by confronting, rather than shutting down the conversation means we are better able to tackle the problem
The IAM website has more information about why anti-islamophobia is important what we can do to support the campaign.
