DIBs newsletter 001: Black Lives Matter


At #paid, we support Black lives, the Black Lives Matter movement, Black employees, Black creators, Black-owned businesses and the entire Black community. Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging ("DIBs") are fundamental parts of our core values.

That said, we still have a lot of work to continue to do.

Our CEO also wrote a blog post around initiatives and commitments we are making as allies to the Black community.

Stay well and healthy,
