The entire staff at Marcus Thomas participates in Beyond Diversity from Courageous Conversation to understand the impact of race in the work environment and to investigate the role that racism plays in our daily lives. Our goal is to begin to transform beliefs and behaviors so people of all races can achieve at their highest levels and live their most powerful and empowered lives. In turn, we believe that contributes to the work we create – work for our clients that is bolder, braver and creates bigger impact.
We cannot be silent any longer. We cannot sit back as black lives continue to be discarded.
We are speaking up for the fight against systemic racism and the inequities that have come with it since 1619. We stand in solidarity with George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tamir Rice and too many black people dying because of racism and hatred. We will not stop speaking out. Because when one of us can’t breathe, none of us can breathe.
