Human rights matter. Therefore Black Lives Matter. As small business owner working to be actively anti-racist, I pledge to:Name white supremacy and the impact of racism on our lives,
in the values expressed on this website, and in the writing reviews I do with clients. In my future newsletter, I commit to doing this too (coming soon).Engage in anti-racist education for you and your team,
by reading books and by taking quarterly online workshops by black DEI educators. In the future, when my budget increases, by hiring a black feminist DEI coach to talk with one-on-one.Commit to open-conflict and allow discomfort,
by listening, empathizing, and not jumping to defend when I'm in a community experiencing conflict. I don't think I'll ever run a community of my own, but if I do, I'll amend this statement to reflect those responsibilities too.Invest a portion of your monthly company budget to the Black community,
by investing monthly in a black-owned business coaching program. In the future, when my budget increases, by hiring black freelancers and consultants to help with design work, tech dev, marketing, and/or operations management.Express my sincere, long-term commitment to becoming an anti-racist organization in my business communication,
starting with this webpage. I'm working on a statement that will be included in my contracts and newsletter. In the future, when my budget allows me to hire, it will be in my job announcements too.
