Police brutality and murder are the unsurprising outcomes of a larger issue that has been poisoning our country since its birth. The stain of white supremacy has tarnished our planet, our policies, and our pursuit of happiness as a people.
We know what to do about this problem. We know what programs and trainings can work. We know how to stop it. What we lack is the will to make the necessary changes.
You know what other problem we know how to solve? Climate change. Again, we know what works, but for the most part, we aren’t doing it. And we certainly aren’t doing it fast enough.
For too long as a country we have known the path forward, but we haven’t taken it. The path is hard. Changing things for the better can be painful, be it stamping out white supremacy or doing the necessary work to end climate change.
On a related front, study after study confirms that companies with a diverse management team out-perform less diverse companies. Diversity in the upper echelons of a company isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s best for business. And yet, most management teams stubbornly continue to lack diversity. We know what to do, but we aren’t doing it.
Reversing climate change and banishing systemic racism will lead to a stronger and freer future for all. At UtilityAPI, we are committed to doing the work.
Our leadership team shares no major demographic. This is a strength — our diversity makes our business stronger. As we grow, we commit to maintaining a diverse, open, and accepting work culture throughout our teams. We will also prioritize, support and work with other companies and organizations who are doing the same.
We invite you to join us.
