in A Exclusive Function in Auburn Sydney about the Muslim Leadership
I have been invited to be a part of a community panel on Muslim leadership this Sunday in Auburn with Tahmina Ansari from the ABC on 'Muslim Leadership' (in conjunction with La Trobe University in Melbourne).
We will be participating in a panel discussion on Muslim Leadership and some of the topics we will be covering are: What leadership... means to us; where the current state of our leadership is and where it is going. There are international speakers as well as Dr Jan Ali, Silma Ihram, Ahmed Kilani, and Mazen Fahme, and the panel will be moderated by Kuranda Seyit.
