We share a deep sense of pain and concern from what we are seeing and experiencing right now. Throughout the history of this company we have been committed to diversity and community support as two of our core values. It is our sincere belief that diversity of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives makes Tsymmetry a stronger and more dynamic organization. Yet there is still much for us to learn about the experiences of our black team members. As a company we feel an intrinsic responsibility to contribute to the communities where we operate. With this in mind, we recognize that the actualization of our core values would be inadequate if we do not support the black community now and continuously in the future.
Each of us have been expressing our individual support through various lanes. Some of us are spreading information and raising awareness, as others are volunteering time and investing in organizations committed to advancing solutions. Some of us are simply educating ourselves on the issue or having challenging conversations with our loved ones. While we all respond in our own way, the leadership of this company stands with the black community against social injustice, inequality, and systematic racism. We stand against violence towards the innocent in all forms. We as human beings are dedicated to ensuring that the world is sustainably a better place for the next generation.
Words without action are exactly that, just words. Our success as a company comes from our willingness to act and lead by example. While this is a small first step towards a better tomorrow, Tsymmetry has donated to the DC Chapter of Black Girls Code – an organization providing girls of color opportunities to learn in-demand skills in technology and computer programming. Through their mission, these young women can become builders of technological innovation and of their own futures. We are confident in our belief of the transformational power of technology. Hopefully, we will have some of these future technologists working with Tsymmetry in the near future.
Our ears, minds, and hearts are open for this opportunity to learn and grow.
