Global Citizens Celebrate Black History Month

Community Global Citizens Celebrate Black History Month

Black History Month is an annually recognized observance that was created to bring attention and recognition to the contributions of black Americans. This month we honor the accomplishments of black excellence and encourage our Global team to learn more. 

Last year, we asked what they had recently learned about black history. One employee shared that they had recently learned the dangers of blind tolerance within American society, stating, “Tolerance is something we were always taught.” But tolerance, they grew to understand, is not the answer. “Acceptance, appreciation, support and speaking up will open the door for real and meaningful change.”

Black History Month is a time of reverence and reflection, as well as an opportunity to look forward with greater understanding and hope for civil and economic equality. 

It is our commitment that each Global team member feels valued, respected and able to be their authentic self. Global embraces different backgrounds, cultures and ways of thinking. We encourage all Global Citizens to understand the importance of the contributions that black Americans have made and continue to learn and grow.
