Day Pitney realizes, now more than ever, that we have a role in ending racial injustice, racial inequity and systemic racism. It is not enough to not be racist; we must actively be anti-racist. The recent deaths of George Floyd in Minnesota and Breonna Taylor in Kentucky by police are sadly not isolated incidents, but repeat a pattern of violence against and dehumanization of Black Americans in the United States. We join the calls from people of all backgrounds and communities for meaningful action and change to address the systemic and deep rooted discrimination and racial inequities that communities of color continue to experience.
Day Pitney has formed the Racial Justice and Equity Task Force with the mission to:
The Task Force represents a cross-section of the firm with respect to office location, role, responsibility and experience.
The Task Force will begin its efforts by conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the culture, policies and structures of the firm for opportunities to address issues of racial injustice, racial inequity
The Task Force welcomes the opportunity to advance the firm's core value of diversity and inclusion, and its goal of transforming our communities into more just, equal and equitable societies.
Please reach out to any of the members on the Task Force or send your questions or comments to the Racial Justice and Equity Task Force.
