In support of our employees, our customers, our partners, and all the communities in which we live and work, we stand with the Black community and condemn all forms of racism, inequality, intolerance, and hate. We also recognize the need for long-term fundamental change, and that takes time. Society can only improve if every individual within it becomes a positive force for equality, tolerance, and understanding.
Words and thoughts are not enough – it takes action. We commit ourselves to an active and consistent process of change through listening, education and our programs; through employee training and development; through our corporate activities and events; and through a deliberate company culture that embraces diversity. Today, we will also take the action to donate to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and the Black Youth Helpline to support equity and opportunity for the Black community in business, employment, education and economic development.
There isn’t a quick or easy solution but we stand by this commitment as our contribution to real change for the future.
