As a global community united in this unprecedented time, we mutually feel a deep sadness, over the injustice and tragedy against our black community just days ago. No longer can we as a society, look to the future with comfort, while racism, inequality and social violence continue to be present.
As the leader of a company built and known for our strong core values and vision, our team welcomes differences and the uniqueness of everyone to bring broader perspectives and encourage collaboration to further progress. We look to our values and our culture to remind ourselves of who we are as an organization; 'We care about one another and emphasize the importance of teamwork with seamless collaboration,' 'We respect and listen to each other; we communicate openly and honestly to build trust', 'We do the right thing, always'.
I find this quote from Hafsat Abiola, Nigerian human and civil rights activist, to be very relevant. “Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are.”
We, as a society, need to start the path to change. Show the world the best that we have, and all that we are. Unite together and stand as one.
