Should moral/religious convictions, ever come into play in terms of engagements we work on? If someone is against something, can they ask not to work on related projects or will that not go well?

Yes. In the past if you had a reasonable moral or religious objection eg tobacco, gambling, Islamic banking, etc then this was taken into account when assigning jobs and usually you could ask for it.

I am definitely open to such discussions/requests. I absolutely do NOT want our people to feel uncomfortable with anything that could make them uncomfortable. Could be gaming, cannabis, spirits, etc.

Yes, I’ve seen people ask not to work on certain industries because they had a moral objection and our office was more than happy to reassign. Made the employees much happier

Usually yes but people lack judgement across the board on this. A friend of mine quit PA after 5 months when we were both new associates because management would only put her on the pig slaughterhouse and bomb building clients. She is vegan and against weapons manufacture. But the office was SUPER sensitive about anyone joining the porn/sextoy manufacturer 🙄 She and I agreed we’d both rather be on the porn client than the slaughterhouse/bomb builder but no one else cared. So she quit.

No issues whatsoever, but do bring it up as soon as possible so it can be rescheduled more easily.

I've asked to be taken off a pharma company and a family group. It's important not to abuse it just to get on different clients and to also realize that there will be a negative career impact (minor to major depending on the client, $$, and staffing situation). But that's the thing about taking a stand, it is by it's nature a difficult thing to do. If it was easy, everyone would do it.
