Rivlin urges economic leaders to open the gates to minority groups

President Reuven Rivlin has urged the leaders of Israel’s economy to open the gates to Arabs, haredim and Ethiopian Israelis, telling them they hold the key to unlock the potential for these communities to contribute to the national economy and society.

Rivlin was speaking at his official residence on Sunday following the presentation of the first Diversity and Equal Opportunity Index, which showed that despite enormous efforts to promote equality, those sectors as well as women in all segments of society continue to suffer wage discrimination, and are often denied employment on the basis of racial, religious and gender bias.
