About a week ago, when I posted about BLM on LinkedIn someone responded saying “What does this have to do with business? Go post this on a different platform”
Today, I will answer that question HEAD ON.
When I first started my company I was told “do not get involved with politics”. I know this is something many executives are told… That being said, that line has been crossed, and that piece of “advice” is no longer relevant… I cannot stay silent during this movement.
“I acknowledge my white privilege and instead of allowing it to put a muzzle on me, I will use it to speak up for what is right and what is wrong.” – Perrie Edwards
Businesses: You cannot simply “wait for all of this to blow over” your silence is compliance.
After watching this video, if you agree with my sentiments, please share so those that need to hear it become more aware.
