treaty of waitangi commitments in the work place

Hi, I am all for bi~culturalism in the workplace. I work in health and disability sector so its ‘mandatory‘ to incorporate TOW principles into out everyday. practises. But every meeting, every meal etc ee are required to have prayers to open and close meetings and powhiri and shared meals. How can I request a cessation of this mandatory religious aspect without coming off as a racist culturally insensitive asshole?See More
