April is Celebrate Diversity Month!

By Ashley R.M. 

“Diversity doesn’t look like anyone. It looks like everyone.” –Karen Draper

Celebrate Diversity Month encourages us to embrace our unique differences and recognize the commonalities that unite us.

The purpose of this month-long celebration is to promote acceptance, inclusion, and understanding of different cultures, lifestyles, and perspectives. It’s a time to recognize and honor the diversity of all people, including differences in culture, gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, age, religion, abilities, education level, and other aspects of diversity.

Most importantly, it is a time to reflect on our journey and recommit ourselves to creating more inclusive environments for all employees and the communities we serve.

At JEVS, we recognize Celebrate Diversity Month and are committed to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion.
