Opsy #18: Happy Ramadan!
Ramadan Mubarak! Sending warm wishes to those of you who will be celebrating Ramadan come Friday. ✨
For everyone else, reminder to check your meeting schedule and think about any accommodations you can proactively offer your Muslim teammates.
As a non-Muslim, here are two resources that I've found to be both helpful & actionable:
- Ramadan tips for non-Muslim friends of Muslims
- And a great thread from Opsy member Anisah Osman Britton 💜
Pro tip: If Ramadan isn't a holiday that would normally be on your radar, add a recurring to-do list or calendar item for reviewing these resources each year. I started doing this a few years ago and it really helps me make sure that I'm keeping these best practices in mind.
