Discussion: American Eid

Disney’s Launchpad is a beautiful example of the importance of everyone getting to see parts of themselves represented on-screen.

This month, we’re discussing American Eid, one of the Season 2 Launchpad shorts that follows Ameena, a Muslim Pakistani immigrant who wakes up on Eid to learn she has to go to school.

How do companies choose which holidays to give off? Have those making this decision considered colleagues who celebrate different holidays? How often do we make an effort to learn about cultures that are different from ours? Let’s get together to discuss all of this and more.

Open to anyone in the content community! RSVP at the link below.

Process note: This session is part of a series of monthly meetups that Steyer hosts. Some of these meetups are limited to Steyer employees only; some are open to the public. The idea is simply to spend a bit of time together exchanging stories and ideas—to get to know one another better and to learn from one another.
