Speaking with Muslim News, Arc. Lateefah Olajide said this year’s event will be held virtually, considering the effects on COVID-19 on the world.
Arc. Olajide said the choice of theme was based on the need to adapt to new ways of working, schooling, worshipping, socializing etc due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to her, “With it has come increasing unrest, due to the economic hardship generally faced by citizens. Likewise, the youths are demanding for better governance, accountability, and an end to police brutality. Feelings of fear, distrust, uncertainty and excitement reign as the world slides into an impending new world order.
“All these issues call for change, which can be very difficult and dangerous if not properly managed. How can these changes be managed? As Muslim professionals, what lessons and opportunities can we gain from the current happenings?,” she noted.
Arc. Olajide therefore called on members, irrespective of their location to register to participate via the link HERE
