We unequivocally stand against racism.

And pledge to be steadfast allies that lead through action.

Here’s what we are doing now, and the first of our many long-term initiatives to come:

Free, confidential mental health support for our team.

Donating $2 for every $1 our employees give to nonprofits that are responding to the urgent needs of the black community and the protest movement.

Overhauling our hiring methods to be more inclusive and supportive to the Black community. A few initiatives on our list: unconscious bias training, blind résumé reviews, standardized interviewing, and sharing our hiring and retention data.

Adopting inclusion riders that make hiring members of the Black community and other minorities mandatory for our photo and video shoots.

Refocusing our internship program around students from under-served communities.

And we won't stop here.

Equality is an opportunity, not a burden. And we cannot rest, until a truly egalitarian system replaces the current one.
