I like diversity goals...but I also think all companies in our industry should be having conversations about inherent bias and privilege

I saw a sign at a rally I attended recently that really stuck with me, "White privilege is not knowing there is a problem because it does not impact you personally" I have spent hours thinking about that sign and how it applies to us and our industry

Our industry is built on entrepreneurs and small companies. Traditionally the LatinX and Black communities ARE entrepreneurial so it is puzzling and frustrating that there is not more diversity within the promo world. One can become a distributor with virtually no capital other than credit and, as has been mentioned, access. I am encouraged by the ideas presented and actual steps that many companies are taking and love hearing the personal stories shared here. Looking at ways that I can be part of progress. I also love seeing the faces of my friends I miss!!

there are little things you can do also...like including your preferred pronouns in your email signature or if your business is women and or minority owned...tells everyone you email important pieces of who you are and shows your willingness to have important discussions
