A call to action from our Chair and CEO Bob Rivers
Here we are again at a time of dismay and sadness when we are called to re-examine our own thoughts and actions, and those of our society, as we are confronted by yet another example of racism, sexism, and the de-humanization of others.
As you know, our company condemns all forms of racism – from the violent to the casual to the political – and we remain committed to doing more to eradicate racial injustice and working together for change. While no one person or institution can solve racism, each of us can do something to show your solidarity and be part of the solution. Reaching out to a colleague or someone else you know to expressyour support, especially now, can go a long way.
It is not enough to say to ourselves that racial bias or worse is not who we are and move on. Not saying or doing something about racism is all that is required for it to prevail.
Good does not stay silent.
