A recent report from the organization ‘Stop Antisemitism’, uncovered the bitter truth of top companies like Google and Unilever, who failed to safeguard their employees against instances of antisemitism.
According to the August 10th report, despite major corporations investing significant time and funds to address traditional gaps in “diversity, equity, and inclusion” policies, many of them have fallen short when it comes to addressing the needs of Jewish employees.
The report looked at 25 companies in the fields of health care, apparel, technology, retail, and beauty, and rated them on three measures: corporate platform, allyship, and internal diversity, equity, and inclusion policies, in order to analyze how safe Jewish employees truly were. Out of the 25 companies, 17 received a rating of “D” or “F.” Only two companies, L’Oréal, and American Eagle, received an “A” rating.
Among those who failed miserably were Unilever, Cigna, and Google, as none of them included Jews or mention anti-Semitism as part of their commitment to diversity and equity.
The report stated, “Overall, the research shows that corporations have failed their Jewish employees. Corporations need to drastically revamp their corporate and DEI policies, and practice genuine allyship to protect their Jewish employees from rising anti-Semitism.”
