Read our June 2020 employee-owned company statement on Black Lives Matter.
The tragedies of the summer of 2020 made us all question deeply as a company what actions we will take to create change. In addition to condemning police violence and racial injustice, what are we doing to address those issues? What could we be doing? What should we be doing?
Our first step on a long journey was to create a Black Lives Matter Working Group internal to Community IT, tasked with helping the company identify and move forward with specific long-term commitments:
Addressing racism and bias at Community IT
Ending police violence against Black people
Working to end racism in American society
We periodically post Black Lives Matter progress report updates here on the aspirations Community IT Innovators is committed to, and the outcomes of the changes we have taken and are taking.
We know the next steps we will take, as an employee owned company, to address grave social problems in a meaningful way will be challenging.
We are grateful for the work of our employees to center this challenge company wide and we have committed ourselves to work hard to rise to this opportunity to transform our company into a more meaningful place to work and a better agent of broader social change.
We strive to live our values throughout our work; with our clients, with our colleagues, and with our internal structures.
We look forward to where we might go next, and we will keep our community informed of our Black Lives Matter progress.
