Creating an Inclusive Workplace During Ramadan

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar and the holy month of fasting. This year, it begins the evening of April 2 and ends the evening of May 2. During Ramadan, Dining & Culinary Services offers special Halal certified meals that can be ordered for pick-up at all of our markets, to accommodate anyone who is observing this holy month. One thing we can do for those who observe is to be more aware and inclusive of our work through accommodations.
