As a company, we have been in deep conversation during this difficult time, determined to stand with our Black colleagues and their communities – and working together on how we can contribute to meaningful change. It is absolutely unacceptable that Black people in the United States, including our colleagues, customers and community members, are fearful for their safety and face the impacts of racism and hatred. We need dialogue, change, education, and action.
