Our Commitment to Pursuing Equality
A Message from Our Leadership
Changing from the bystander effect to bystander intervention is going to require individuals, families, communities and companies to notice certain events as problems and take action to help. It requires having enough conviction to say or do something to make things right. With help from trusted voices and leaders in the community, we will do what we can to make a positive difference for the communities and people that need it most.
– Bwana Clements, Senior Diversity & Inclusion Manager
