Eid Dinner A celebration of entrepreneurial transcendence


Sponsored by Rehability UK

On Tuesday 21 March, London Mayor Sadiq Khan switched on the first ever celebratory Ramadan lights in Piccadilly Circus to mark the beginning of the reflective month. It was a gesture of great significance, felt by the Muslim community around the country.

This milestone marked a pinnacle of acceptance that contributions from minority groups add hugely to the richness of the cultural landscape in UK no matter whether this be in the field of media (Michal Hussain, Zeinab Badawi), sport (Mo Farah, Moeen Ali), politics (Baroness Warsi, Rushanara Ali) or business (James Caan, Sir Anwar Pervez).

Equally significant is the manner in which directors and boards in the UK have come to understand the significance of the reflective month and to provide a supportive and caring environment for fellow workers observing their faith during the month. 

The IoD’s mission is to develop, support and represent skilled, knowledgeable and responsible leaders for the benefit of the economy and society at large and in this regard, we work through our membership of company directors, to be at the forefront of ED&I initiatives and achievements that make the UK cultural landscape as inclusive as it is today.

To celebrate years of transcendence, the IoD invites you, no matter what background, to attend this dinner in celebration of Eid, hosted at the House of Lords on Thursday 15 June 2023.  This will be an opportunity to not only network, but to also hear from high profile dignitaries including Lord Rami Ranger and Lord Qurban Hussain.

The evening will also commemorate the launch of a new Special Interest Group for the Institute: British Asian Business Community, which sets out to better connect, represent and advance IoD members of Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) origin. The group will be chaired by Abid Khan, IoD branch chair for Coventry & Warwickshire.
