In 2020, we saw revolutionary new energy with the potential to combat hundreds of years of systemic racism on the North American continent. Since then, we’ve deepened our commitment to continuous anti-racist learningand taken part in more action, more conversations, and more commitment to changing the institutions that uphold white supremacy and colonialism.
Structural change doesn’t happen overnight. Moreover, enacting meaningful change will look different across each individual organization. As we develop our response to the broader call for change, we are focusing on specific actions, like those detailed in our 2022-23 Reconciliation Action Plan, that we can do at Briteweb to move the needle—both for our team and in the impact we can create. We approach these efforts with humility and open minds, recognizing how much we have to learn as an organization. We’re not here to “fix” issues that have been entrenched for centuries; we’re joining a very old fight in order to move the needle in our own way. We also know that engaging with these issues, and inviting a wider range of voices and talent into our community, will benefit Briteweb, our partners, and our work.
