Standing with the Black Community
We will not be silent. As a diverse organization that is made up of people who care, we stand in solidarity with those advocating for racial injustice and aim to be part of the change by taking action. We are making a promise to speak out against racism for the long term. Here’s how we are doing it.
- Actively improving diversity and inclusion within Qode Media by ensuring that anti-racism is rooted in our values and demonstrated in our actions and decisions every day. We will continue to review internal hiring practices to ensure our company is a welcoming place to work for for all.
- We are developing a long-term strategy to ensure a more inclusive and diverse online presence by amplifying Black voices through partnering with more Black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs.
- Donating to bail out funds, foundations, etc.
It’s a start, but we can’t stop there. We recognize that we have a lot more work to do to ensure that we fight racism and injustice day-to-day. By not turning a blind eye, by having tough conversations, by calling out bias, including our own and by taking action. We will continue to be advocates for change. We have the responsibility to make an accountable commitment to the spaces where we have influence.
Qode Media is founded on the mission to be an inclusive, welcoming and diverse agency. We support you and stand with you.
