With the recent guilty verdict from the Derek Chauvin Trial, we felt it important to share the statement from our CEO and on the murder of George Floyd.
Andrea Duffield, CEO, Statement on George Floyd Murder:
As we digest the outcome of Derek Chauvin’s trial, we are taking time to reflect. We still mourn the death of George Floyd & the countless BIPOC lives that we have lost & continue to lose. We cannot resolve to complacency; we must continue to work to dismantle racism everywhere.
As an agency we are working to build a culture that is an inclusive and respectful work environment for all people. We seek to prioritize the importance of considering others’ perspectives and respect that those opinions are formed based on unique lived experiences.
Within our core values we state:
We Value Compassion, Dignity, Diversity and Respect. We recognize that the impact and the potential need for time and space to process the implications of this trial and the all-too-familiar violent actions towards people of color in our country.
