Black Lives Matter
June 04, 2020
I wanted to address the events of the past week regarding the ongoing protests for George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement. As a company, Acuity believes in equality and supports diversity.
We stand in solidarity with our employees and communities who are voicing their anguish, anger, and deep frustration with systems that oppress and devalue any lives.
We stand against police brutality in all forms.
As people sharing this earth and this experience we have to do better. To create change we need more. We need to eliminate biases and the way we view others, and all of us, today this week and every single day can be part of this change.
As a company, we are an equal opportunity employer and believe we have a diverse workforce. However, there is always more we can do. To put actions to our words we are setting up a special committee that will evaluate our diversity status and determine how we can promote diversity and inclusion at Acuity and in our communities over the long term.
