Dear DO School community,
We offer this statement humbly after a period of sustained and deep reflection amongst our team.
The last few weeks have made abundantly clear what has been a lived reality for far too many, for far too long: we live in a world that still bears racism and injustice.
As the events sparked by the killing of George Floyd quickly began to unfold, our initial impulse, in classic DO School manner, was to start DOing. However, after conversations amongst the team and our community, we realized we had to take a moment to pause, listen, discuss, and take an honest look at how we as a company can do more.
With that in mind, we are sharing with you the steps we are taking. Please note that this is just a starting point and we will continue to explore our active antiracism going forward. We also encourage you as our community to hold us accountable and speak up as some of you already have – and we thank you for that.
We hereby state our support for the Black Lives Matter movement and our long-term commitment to antiracist work. Furthermore, this reaffirms our long-held belief that diversity is the cornerstone of The DO School. We hope you will contribute your brilliance and hold us accountable. If you have ideas, criticism, or want to be involved, please get in touch. And in the meantime, we will continue to share our learnings and actions with our community.
Wishing everyone strength during these trying times.
The DO School team
