In light of the recent events of May and June 2020 – the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, and the resulting uprisings across the country – I’ve learned a lot about what it means to build a truly anti-racist business.
Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) have an immense amount of knowledge and expertise. We will be a better business community if we actively work to dismantle the systems that silence BIPOC voices, perspectives, and lived experiences.
I believe all members of the online entrepreneur community, and all members of our country for that matter, should be valued, respected, and protected equally.
I do not believe in white supremacy, but I now understand that white power and privilege will reproduce itself in my business and life unless I’m engaged in ongoing anti-racism work.
Given this, here are some steps I’m taking in my business and online communities to create more equitable and encouraging environments for BIPOC folks:
I am open to feedback and conversation about additional ideas and approaches. I’m sure as I learn more, my approaches to anti-racism will evolve and change. Thank you for your grace and contributions in this process.
