#paid strongly supports the Black Lives Matter movement and will not stand for injustice in the Black community. We want to use this opportunity to reaffirm that this is unacceptable. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others taken at the hands of racism and hate: we’re fighting for you and with you.
Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging are a core part of who we are at #paid. We want to make it clear that we stand with the Black community.
However, this is a journey, and we can do better as a company. Here are our commitments:
Finally, to support those who are pushing for reform, and the Black community, we have made donations to NAACP Legal Fund and BLM Toronto. We will also match any employee donations to organizations fighting systemic racism and racial injustice, up to a total of an additional $5,000.
We are also publishing our internal Resource Guide in case this is helpful to anyone on the journey of learning and educating themselves.
We’re always open to feedback and we are here to listen; feel free to reach out at email@example.com if you want to chat about Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging at #paid.
This is a defining and pivotal moment that can drive real change towards racial equality. We are committed to doing the work, educating ourselves, listening, being allies, and making a difference.
