Black lives matter.
The Clearing resoundingly and unequivocally condemns violence against black people and commits to dismantling the systemic racism that plagues our country.
We stand with our black colleagues, friends, and community. It is our duty as a team to see each other, hear each other, and support each other in action and to achieve results.
Our firm is recognized for our ability to take deliberate, informed actions after truly listening to diverse perspectives. This past week, we dedicated time to listening to each other, our clients and the community, learning, and reaching out to our trusted partners to understand a range of perspectives on the outcomes we desire and the actions we should take in service of these outcomes. We will continue to listen and open paths to new inquiries.
We commit to move into action as we raise our voices — because speaking out is simply not enough. We stand in solidarity with the black community, and people of color more broadly, and will work to advance social justice and eradicate systemic racism within our organization and across our country.
We act in alignment with our values and our mission; we pledge to take specific action to counter racism through policies, practices, and unceasing awareness and accountability.
The role of The Clearing is to take on causes that matter and to achieve outcomes. We have so much work to do and we are in this together.
