GMR recognizes that we have responsibilities beyond serving the needs of our clients and driving profits. We have a responsibility to our employees and our industry to address the legacy of racial injustice, and to use our power and influence to dismantle racial inequity in our own agency and communities.
We believe that Black Lives Matter. We believe that racism is both systemic and cultural, and that systems and culture are powered—and can be changed—by the people who comprise them. Therefore, it is our responsibility, both as an organization and as people, to work to drive change within our walls, within our industry and through the work we create.
This list is just a snapshot of recent programming developed for GMR employees—and it is just part of the work to be done. We must continue to hold ourselves, and each other, accountable to build understanding, empathy and equity at all levels and in all aspects of agency life.
