Educating our team. We recognize that we have much to learn and are grateful for the resources provided by educators who have dedicated their lives to fighting racial injustice. We will be enrolling our entire team in courses designed by Rachel Cargle and Ericka Hart as well as supporting and distributing the work of Michelle Alexander, Aja Barber and Ibram X. Kendi to our entire team.
Diversifying our team. We do not have any full-time BIPOC staff and we don’t have enough BIPOC freelancers. This needs to change. As we continue to grow our team, we are committed to hiring BIPOC team-members so we can accurately represent the community we serve.
Diversifying those we work with, beyond our team. We don’t work with too many influencers, but we definitely don’t work with enough BIPOC influencers and this we will be changing immediately. We also haven’t been actively searching for ways to partner with Black artists and Black-owned brands, but we will make this a priority.
Representing BIPOC in our imagery. Pictures are worth 1000s of words, so you bet we’re going to make our imagery speak louder than any promise we could make. We pledge to hire BIPOC models regularly so we have better representation on our site and on our feed.
Encourage dialogue. We want to empower our customers to hold us accountable. We welcome your input and will keep the lines of communication open for our continued growth.
