Working 9-5: Advocating for Antisemitism Education in your Workplace

Featuring Ariel Behrman, Marya Slade

Mar 5, 10:35am-12:15pm ET
Even as diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts continue to gain momentum in the workplace, antisemitism education is often left out of DEI conversations and strategies. In this session, participants will learn about ADL’s corporate engagement work while also discovering strategies for improving advocacy and engagement in their own workplaces. Through engaging in this advocacy workshop, participants will be ready to return to work to make the pitch to activate positive change.
