Not that we arecontent to rest on our laurels—ING has conducted or is planning to conduct nine speaker training sessionsfor local speakers this year, including several designed to expand the skills and range of veteran speakers.In a world where intercultural contact and interaction grow daily, we can’t afford to stand still.Even these figures don’t tell the whole story. At least equally important is the nature of ING presentationsand their audiences. Here are a few of our most significant this year:  ING speakers have spoken at a number of classes and symposia at the Graduate Theological Union, including two Baptist-Muslim dialogues and a “Day of Learning” sponsored by the Centers for Islamic and Jewish Studies on Hagar in Islamic and Jewish tradition.  ING provided an interfaith panel on different religions’ approach to end-of-life issues for California Pacific Medical Center and Coming Home Hospice in San Francisco.  An ING interfaith panel presented at an afternoon of training for Girl Scout parents and leaders.  ING organized an interfaith panel discussing religion and science for the exhibit Islamic Science Rediscovered at the Tech Museum.  ING speakers reached over a thousand students each at Independence High School in San Jose and Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, presenting to fifty classes in six sessions at the former and participating in a school-wide interfaith service in the latter.
