The holiday season is a time of reflection with hope for the new year. With that reflection and hope, we have an opportunity as Central Indiana business leaders to demonstrate our moral clarity by condemning harmful speech or actions in our communities and workplaces, reinforcing our commitment to inclusion and calling for greater understanding and dialogue. In that regard, several companies have come together to support the following pledge:
“We stand firmly against all forms of discrimination and hate based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, disability and sexual orientation. We believe that diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to thriving communities, and we are committed to fostering an environment of respect where we live and work. We condemn any words, actions or behaviors that go against these values, and we will actively work to promote decency, safety and fairness in all aspects of our businesses. We stand in solidarity with those who have been affected by discrimination and hate, and we will continue to strive for a better, more inclusive future for all.”
To show your support for this pledge, feel free to repost it on your company’s website.
