WE CARE ABOUT EQUALITY, JUSTICE & REPRESENTATION.
We hope you will join us in doing our research, in reflecting on our beliefs and on our actions and in constantly improving our listening skills. We know change won’t happen over night, or without lots of work. We are here to do this work, to do more than think and talk about equality, but help make change. Our team is working to figure out how to best move forward as an actively anti-racist company and welcome any suggestions or recommendations.
