NILG Statement on Recent Events
As an organization committed to equal employment opportunity and equitable treatment in the workplace, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the pain of social injustice towards Black Americans. As a country, we have not yet achieved justice and equal treatment for all. As we continue to grapple with the senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and others there is no question that we still have a lot of work to do in this country to break down barriers and heal our racial divide. No one can deny that these acts of lethal violence towards Black Americans are simply unconscionable. We all must be leaders for change to foster equity and inclusion in every aspect of the workplace and our HR practices and continue to advocate for those who have been historically excluded from workplace opportunities. We are dedicated to do more to be a part of the solution.
