There has been an alarming increase in antisemitism. Indeed, it has become acceptable to spew antisemitic venom and/or to share antisemitic tropes in some circles.

Like other forms of bigotry, individuals with antisemitic views don’t check their views at the workplace door. There is growing evidence that the hate and/or tropes are infecting the workplace, too.

In a recent national survey, 1 in 4 hiring managers admitted to being less likely to hire someone that is, or is believed to be, Jewish. Other findings of the survey are just as troubling.

The discriminatory findings are frightfully close to a landmark study from the ADL 7 years ago about the discriminatory attitudes toward Jews in the US. And, that was before the rise in antisemitism.

Also up is harassing conduct directed at or about Jews. Many managers do not fully understand the conspiracy theory that animates some antisemitism. According, managers may be silent when they see, hear or otherwise become aware of harassing conduct rooted in the conspiracy theory.

As for legal protection of Jewish applicants and employees, it is not limited to discrimination and harassment based on religion. Protection may be based on ethnicity, even race and perhaps even genetic information.

This program is a call to action for leaders that will cover:

  1. Working definition of antisemitism, including the conspiratorial nature of it
  2. Antisemitism outside of work and how that may affect Jewish employees at work
  3. Surveys of “admitted” bias against Jews, including at work
  4. Legal landscape: scope of protections for Jewish applicants and employees
  5. Conscious and implicit bias at work
  6. Harassing conduct at work: the obvious and the more subtle
  7. Insensitive communications (and how to reframe them)
  8. The role of DEI (including the “privilege” and other traps)
  9. Increasing the inclusion of Jewish employees, including embracing Jewish Pride

This program is substantially similar to, but not the same as, the program on antisemitism we delivered in November.
