To those I say: to be silent is to be complicit. We know that social issues left unaddressed turn into civil issues and into business issues. Over the last three months, we have witnessed a global pandemic disproportionately affect minority communities. At the same time, our country is finally grappling with the reality of the Black experience and systemic racism. Now is the time for honest conversations and collaborative plans as we work towards addressing these issues, then healing as a community and as a country.

 

This Monday, WIPP welcomes our entire community to join in a conversation on how business owners and employers can best support and elevate the voices of Black and brown people in business.

At WIPP, our legacy is steeped in leveling the playing field. Every day, my team and I work to provide valuable advocacy actions, community resources, and accessible education to the women’s business community to ensure their sustainable success. With the current state of the country, it is more than apparent that we need to engage in a larger conversation—what WIPP is doing to be part of the solution and not part of the perpetual problem of systemic injustice.

 

Today and moving forward, WIPP will continue to listen to our members, corporate and agency partners, as well as our strategic partner organizations, to acknowledge and take action when injustice demands it.

 

Our lives literally depend on it.
