Statement to Our Community
In recognition of the tragic events that have unfolded across our nation in recent weeks and months, Inforum salutes the commitment and courage of peaceful protesters seeking meaningful change so that the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and the many other African American men and women taken by racism and police brutality will not have ended in vain.
It’s important as well to acknowledge that the COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated the deep inequities that affect women of color, at home and at work. More people of color have died from the virus, and women and people of color are disproportionately affected by the job losses and economic uncertainty is has wrought.
While the Inforum mission is centered on gender diversity, we uphold and promote the values of broadly defined diversity, equity and inclusion in everything we do. That includes bringing fresh insights on the value of inclusive business cultures, providing opportunities for our members and guests to learn from and participate in discussions featuring diverse participants and perspectives, and producing and sharing data that demonstrate the positive impact of diversity, equity and inclusion on business, education and society overall.
Today more than ever, to the Black women in our community, we see you, we hear you and we stand with you. Women should have equal opportunities and equal recognition in their lives and in their careers. We will continue to learn, listen, and amplify the voices and leadership of Black women.
Who We Are
Inforum accelerates careers for women and is a catalyst that removes barriers and increases opportunity. See what’s possible. Get there faster.
A culture that embraces women leading and succeeding
