Statement on Systemic Racism and Gender Bias

We Hold These to be True:

  • Systemic racism and gender bias are realities in our culture.
  • Only through constant diligence can we hope to mitigate the damage these biases perpetuate within our organization, and potentially be a voice for lasting, positive change.
  • Constant diligence means we are all accountable to listen to voices from those whose perspective may not align with our experience.  We understand that these incomplete perspectives are “blind spots.” 
  • We recognize we have many blind spots, and value the perspectives of those who generously seek to open our eyes to them.

Listening Means:

  • Holding space so that the voices that seek to help us improve may rise above the noise of the day-to-day status quo of inequity.
  • Taking necessary action to be outside of the pattern of systemic racism and gender bias.
  • Engage with other organizations in the constant struggle to reduce systemic racism and gender bias.

In Particular, we hold the Following as Truth:

Action (in words, and other choices) is the only way to be a force for positive change.  Silent disapproval without action is, in fact, demonstrable action to maintain and support a status quo of systemic racism and gender bias, to which we are opposed.
