I join global leaders in expressing my sadness and frustration at the social injustice targeting our black communities that has resulted in protests and violence around the world. Headlines once dominated exclusively to COVID-19, have now shifted to graphic images and eye-witness accounts of the tragic deaths of Black/African American men and women over the last weeks, months, and, in truth, decades.
As a global company committed to Diversity, Equality & Inclusion, we stand together in support of accepting and valuing differences in race, ethnicity, gender expression, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, personality, skills and experiences. We are also committed to fostering a safe, collaborative, supportive and respectful environment that values diverse perspectives, mitigates unconscious bias and enables a culture where employees are able to bring their authentic self to work.
For us, this requires empathy, understanding and acceptance of the varying experiences of our people around the world. It means recognizing the deep emotional impact and uncomfortable social inequalities that plague our communities, and taking a stand against injustice at every step. At Univar Solutions, we truly believe that only together do we win.
