Together, we can create a world where everyone is relevant

June 5th, 2020

We know you are hurting. We hurt with you.

We grieve and we stand with our Black teammates, friends, partners and clients at this difficult time and we will continue to stand on the side of equity and justice always. There is no place for hatred or inequality in our workplace, our community or our country.

We cannot undo the pain of this moment, but we can and do pledge to do our part to affect positive change. Our vision to create a world where everyone is relevant is more important now than ever.  And that starts with showing up. It involves speaking up.

We have a responsibility to join the strong voices around us in speaking up that enough is enough. Change is not only needed, but a necessity for our collective future. We stand in solidarity with our Black teammates, friends, partners and clients and condemn the systemic racism, inequality and judicial injustice plaguing our country.

There is power in standing together, but there is more to do.

We joined the B Corp community to join others in affecting positive change around the globe and to challenge ourselves to be the company and people we want to be at AE Works. That involves the responsibility to speak up, having the courage to challenge and develop ourselves, and lead to address these hard problems and injustices.

We share this statement recently released by Anthea Kelsick, Co-CEO, B Lab U.S. & Canada, to the B Corp community, where she
calls on our community to hold each other accountable, be vocal and ask ourselves these hard questions.   You can read it here.

Together, we stand. And together, we will affect change to achieve a better future for us all, a world where everyone is relevant.
