Doing good isn’t enough.

As nonprofit consultants, we’ve been paying close attention to the evolving national dialogue around police brutality, Black Lives Matter, and systemic racism. But,to be honest, while we’ve seen quite a few personal and professional solidarity statements, we don’t see nearly enough honest introspection. Us included. We keep asking ourselves, what does it means to commit to shared values around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion?

Here’s our view: Being serious about erasing systemic inequities is a marathon, not a sprint, and we’re committed to doing our part one engagement, one position, one decision at a time. We work internally and externally, across all our engagements and interactions, to make real, meaningful and tangible change. Ending systemic racism is our shared responsibility and it’s just getting started.
