October 27, 2022 marks the fourth anniversary of the tragic shooting at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh. Sadly, antisemitism continues to be expressed more publicly and more frequently. We believe in doing our part to create positive change to help build a better world for our associates and our communities.
As we reflect on the devastating impact of all forms of hatred, bigotry, and antisemitism, AEO is proud to share that we have once again renewed our support of the Anti-Defamation League’s No Place for Hate program. This is the fourth donation we have made to help fund anti-bias education in 24 Pittsburgh-area schools, reaching nearly 17,000 students and 1,200 educators.
We are an inclusive company that celebrates individuality, belonging and diversity. Our Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA) Alliance created a foundation for the guiding principles we live and work by today and serves as the backbone of our vibrant community. We will continue to embed IDEA in the everyday actions of our business and the experiences of our associates while fostering a workplace culture where everyone feels respected and included.
Together, we can move forward with determination and a commitment to ensure that justice, acceptance and kindness will always prevail.
