Bringing diversity, inclusivity and

equality to the forefront

Earlier this year, we were all shocked at the inhumane and unjust deaths of George

Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Regis Korchinski-Paquet, and too many others. These racial and

social injustices are reflective of broader systemic racism in our society that has gone

unchecked for far too long.

Gone are the days when employers can simply ignore issues of inequality in the

workplace. It's time to talk about racism. Although these kinds of discussions can be

uncomfortable, they are important and necessary to have. They spark acknowledgement,

they spark education and understanding, and they spark the need for action. As an

organization, we have begun to reflect on these issues with greater intention and have all

agreed that to "say nothing” is simply not acceptable.

At TICO we are actively engaging in meaningful conversations. We are asking tough

questions. We are evaluating our core values and our business practices to ensure they

reflect who we are and who we need to be. And we are considering how best to respond

to Black Lives Matter and other issues relating to systemic racism. There has never been

a better or more important time for us and for registrants to demonstrate our ongoing

commitment to fostering a workplace of diversity, inclusivity and equality.
