MIC World Chat
Originally from Pakistan, Nadir Budhwani will draw upon his experience as an Ismaili Muslim, both in Pakistan and the U.S., in a discussion about the history and meaning of Islam, including Muslim observances and festivals. He will also address how culture and Islam have influenced each other over time. Ismaili Muslims maintain a tradition of international service and philanthropy and view Islam as a religion that emphasizes thinking, spiritual faith and intellectual search, and one that appreciates, respects and promotes diversity in its interpretation.
Mr. Budhwani designs and delivers training programs in cross-cultural areas and has been a guest speaker for the Interfaith Dialogue at the University of Minnesota. He holds M.Ed. and MBA degrees in Human Resource Development and Marketing respectively and is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Human Resource Development at the University of Minnesota. He is also an active speaker in MIC's classroom and Great Decisions programs.
