Basic Principles of Islamic Culture - On Demand

About the event

This course is provided by College Education and Training, a business unit of Pharmaceutical Society of New Zealand Inc.

Presented by:

Keshree Naidoo-Rauf

Keshree is South African by birth, Indian by ethnicity and Fijian-Indian Muslim by marriage. She is based in Hamilton where she is heavily involved with the local community and often run initiatives to help those in need. She has chosen to educate herself about the Muslim culture in particular to connect with her family, teach her son about his heritage, and better understand the Muslim community. She believes that education about other cultures is key to creating an inclusive society. As pharmacists we are in an ideal role to model inclusive behaviour. "Diversity is a fact. Inclusion is a choice."
