In America’s founding, our nation put into writing the core belief that all men are created equal. Since then, we have had to work through various generations in pursuit of making that belief into a reality. Every American should feel that they belong.
After working in the community with his nonprofit organization, Leadership Influencing Teen Empowerment (LITE), and completing his certification in Diversity and Inclusion from Cornell, Nathan Jarosz became better aware of underlying issues that lead to discrimination and prejudice. Nathan teaches high school students about diversity, inclusion, listening, emotional intelligence, behavioral styles, and other concepts that promote a greater acceptance and civil discourse among people. Diversity is a strength, but people need the skills in our society to better manage those differences in a positive and constructive way. By continuing to listen to the challenges of minority communities, Nathan will work alongside them to advocate for equality, equity, and justice for a more inclusive state.
