Diversity and Inclusion
Jon Strauss, a Multi-Site Community Manager in New York City, was one of the talented Equity employees featured on our virtual D&I event focused on standing up to antisemitism and stopping Asian hate. Jon shared these thoughts about inclusion and acceptance: “Exclusion and hate stem from a lack of knowledge and fear of the unknown. For a stronger and more connected society free from groupthink, we must check our biases, embrace what makes us unique and immerse ourselves in the cultures and traditions of others to be more inclusive and accepting of our differences.” #BeYourself #BeHeard #YouMatter #JewishAmericanHeritageMonth
