There is widespread pain across our nation, and our hearts are hurting. We are both saddened and angered by the senseless killing of George Floyd, and before him, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and others whose deaths have been less well publicized. Most painfully, we acknowledge that racism and discrimination continue to plague our nation. We must be better.
Within the Consulting Solutions family of companies, we strive to build lasting, positive relationships with our clients, consultants, employees, and business partners. The tragedies of late are a wakeup call for us all, proving that injustice and racism continue to harm our society and that we all need to play a part in ending this threat to human dignity and life.
To our colleagues in the Black community – you are valued, you and your families matter, and we see you. Collectively, Consulting Solutions hurts with you, and we share the fear and concern from the horrible events over the last few weeks. We stand with you in solidarity and want you to know you are not alone. We will do everything we can as a business to address and eradicate racism and discrimination and push for a world that is equitable and kind, where all people have the same opportunities to learn, grow and thrive.
