A MESSAGE TO OUR COMMUNITY
In this time of challenge and outrage, as Americans across this country deal with the personal and professional disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic and now march in protest of systemic racism and inequality, it is clear that we still have a long way to go. It is even more incumbent on us in the business community to model the behaviors and practices of acceptance, diversity and inclusiveness that have built this nation into the strongest economy in the world.
