Diversity and inclusion programs, anti-racism resources, and how to be an ally.

Lives lost. Protests. Debates. Uncomfortable conversations. Repeat. 


We can do better.


Each day our social media feeds are inundated with another person, another life, another murder. 

The names we see in the headlines equate to only a minute fraction of the millions that have been affected by the systematic racism that has been embedded in our society. 


We can do better.


To our Black community. We are listening. We hear you. We see you. We give space to you.


We can do better.


To our community of allies.


It's time that we raise up Black voices. It's time that we take a good hard look at our organization's diversity and inclusion programs to ensure they are ACTUALLY working for the benefit of creating truly inclusive cultures in our workplaces. That they are more than a check-the-box approach. And that they are an integral part of our organizational mission, vision, and values.


We can do better. 


With countless resources available to learn more about what allyship truly is, how to develop and implement Diversity and Inclusion practices, procedures, and programs, and how you can support causes that are working tirelessly to provide education, training, and resources to eradicate racism, it's time we DO better.


Together we can create change - and it starts with taking action.
