Valuing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion During Women’s History Month and Year-Round

Women’s History Month celebrates women’s contributions to history, culture, and society.

The 2024 National Women’s History Month theme is “Women Who Advocate for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.”

This year’s theme is timely. The latest data by the United Nations says the goal of gender equality and empowering all women and girls by 2030 is off track. We want this goal to become reality.

This month and every day, JEVS honors women who are allies for inclusion. They empower us to take a stand, do more, and use our power for the good of others!

As we focus on the theme of ‘Women Who Advocate for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion,’ we invite you to recognize the women in your community who support DEI values. Let’s work together to create fair opportunities for everyone, regardless of gender. Each one of us can make a positive impact: let’s remember to appreciate and support people who work toward a future where everyone is treated equally.

A Virtual Workshop on Culture Building and Inclusion

As an organization founded on efforts to welcome and serve others, JEVS Human Services embraces the values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) by offering virtual trainings that provide ways to support individuals in the workplace.

Recently, on September 21, 2023, JEVS hosted the workshop, Building a Culture of Inclusion. This training provided a forum for learning about disability etiquette and addressed misconceptions as well as questions.

We extend our gratitude to Julia Blackwell, Executive Director of JEVS hireAbility, and Suzanne Erb, Accessibility Manager for PA CareerLink, for their invaluable assistance in helping JEVS staff better understand how to support individuals with visible, invisible, or acquired disabilities.
