Virtual Global Gathering – Together We Stand Against Anti-Semitism


As a Department, we stand in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues all over the globe. As Secretary Blinken stated in his July 27 message to the workforce, the hateful, egregious act of carving a swastika in a Department elevator has no place in our institution.

Please join Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Ambassador Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley for a VIRTUAL GLOBAL GATHERING for Department employees on Wednesday August 4, 09:00-10:00 a.m. EDT, at We will hear from Department leadership and Jewish colleagues on how we can all play a role in uprooting anti-Semitism and other forms of intolerance in the Department. An interactive platform will allow participants to ask questions real-time. We invite posts around the world to stage similar events.

Together we must work to create a safe and inclusive Department that values and maximizes the potential of all.
