Dear friends,

The news coming out of the U.S. over the past few days has affected everyone. We also know that it represents a much larger and global issue of racial disparity. We as a company are taking this week to reflect on what is happening and to learn from these events.

There are no instant solutions, but we hope that by making space to hear unheard voices, list out how we participate in the problem and solution and make long-term commitments to aiding in solving these very complicated and systemic inequality issues, we will aim to make a positive impact. We all need to do what we can—even if it feels small—to implement progress.

We urge you to join us in reflecting, having difficult conversations, taking action and helping to make much needed change. Please feel free to email us to share any thoughts on this issue and how you think we can do better:

We will follow up in a few days with our action plan and resources.
