To Our Independent Professionals,
Our corporate belief system begins with the tenet of living by the Golden Rule—treating others as you wish to be treated. The Golden Rule guides us in our commitment to fight against racism and bias in all its forms.
We also believe in communication with candor and with empathy. If we do not speak up in difficult situations, we cannot effect positive change. We express empathy to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and the Black community at large. We say with candor: enough is enough.
Today, we make a commitment to you.
Being an independent professional is about seizing opportunities and creating a career and life on your own terms. It’s our purpose and our obligation to operate without bias to ethnicity, creed, or gender. Our diversity is the towering strength that sets our nation apart.
We listen to you. We hear you. We stand with you—today and every day.
