As a global community, we have grappled with a deep crisis these past few months ... lives lost, livelihoods impacted and the ripple effects of COVID-19 on our families and communities. And In the midst of this, the US has been shaken by violence and the deaths of African Americans in recent days that only build on years of injustices. Sadly, inequality persists around the world. Our Senior Leadership Team feels compelled to reach out in solidarity and compassion.
Despite the struggles of this pandemic, we’ve seen powerful signs of hope over the past 12 weeks. The heroism of frontline workers. Neighbors helping neighbors. And we ourselves have come together as One EFX Team like never before. At the same time, the unspeakable tragedies in the US show us how much work needs to be done to create a shared sense of humanity. We want to acknowledge the pain, frustration and anger some of you are feeling right now, wherever you call home.
Today we stand beside our colleagues who are struggling, and we stand against racism, inequality and intolerance in all its forms. At Equifax, our Purpose is rooted in Helping People. This starts within our own walls. Our employees – and our customers – come from all walks of life, each with unique experiences. Diversity is what makes us stronger, and we are on a journey to build that strength every day. We value everyone, equally.
We are determined to create a workplace where everyone feels welcomed, valued and respected … a safe space where we can all Live Our Best. We remain committed to make even more meaningful strides to advance our work in Inclusion and Diversity. The recent shocks we’ve experienced in the US will only accelerate our progress and renew our commitment.
Thank you for your focus and hard work. Every one of us can make a difference. One team, OneEFX.
