DI Staff to Lead Workshop at Parliament of the World's Religions

Dialogue Institute Founder and President, Leonard Swidler, and Executive Director, Rebecca Mays, will lead a workshop at the 2015 Parliament of the World's Religions, October 15-19, 2015, on "Writing a Global Ethic from the Grassroots."

The workshop will first present a global ethic written by Professor Swidler for the 1993 Parliament of the World's Religions in Chicago, which has been used and revised in countless communities around the world. Participants will outline an initial draft ethic based on their own experience and contexts, and will be encouraged to continue to discuss and refine the draft in their home communities.

In addition to the workshop, the DI will have an exhibition booth throughout the Parliament (#824), as well as book signings with Professor Swidler each day of the Parliament (Friday-Monday, 12:30-1:30 pm at the exhibition booth, and Saturday, 5-6 pm, following the workshop).
