This should be easy, making a corporate pledge to not tolerate systemic racism. And yet every sentence feels inadequate. I type, I delete. Type again, delete.
We have to get this right. Not ‘The Statement.’ This — this moment in history.
The corporate sentiments being issued are heartfelt and they are unequivocal. But in the end, none of us can look to any company to truly confront racism. No corporate action plan or mandate will do the work for any one person. Me. You. It all comes down to the individual. We are seeing this every day across our cities, the country and the world: individuals driving change that is so very long overdue.
i2Integration rejects systemic racism and the systems that support it. This is our call to action.
