CSIS is looking to arrange a Eid Party for members at lunchtime on Wednesday 22nd October (well OK, a slightly belated Eid Party then!) together with Sir Gus O’Donnell, Sadiq Khan and Shahid Malik MP.

Aswell as giving us an opportunity to get together and meet our Brothers and sisters from across the Civil Service, it will give us an opportunity to discuss the diversity agenda and issues surrounding Muslims in the civil service.

We are still finalising the details on the venue, but it will almost certainly be in or around the Westminster village.

Further details to follow but can CSIS members who are interested in coming along please email Umran Nazir (umran.nazir@dft.gsi.gov.uk) in the first instance with your expressions of interest so that we can gauge how many people we will have to cater for.
