The recent events in North America surrounding systemic racism have left us saddened, disheartened, and angered for the injustices that continue to impact the Black community and BIPOC. These recent events have made it clear that we need to re-examine our efforts and take immediate and sustained action to combat racial bias. As individuals and a brand, we have spent the past two weeks pausing to listen, learn and better educate ourselves to further act against systemic racism.
As the Founder of Piper & Skye, I have always recognized the importance of representing diversity in our brand and have been proud of the work we have done to showcase diversity in each of our marketing efforts with our collections.
Simply put, we must be more committed to the support of BIPOC for the betterment of our future and humanity. We feel it is important to share with you our commitments with this ongoing dialogue to ensure we are moving forward together for a brighter world. While some of these initiatives will take time to implement and ultimately drive change, we hope you will be confident in our continued support of BIPOC.
We commit to continuously overseeing our internal policies, company partners, and our supply chain to ensure they are aligned with our inclusive promise.
We are committed to celebrating our inclusive Board of Advisors and to ensuring we have a board represented by people of all backgrounds, at all times. We welcome and cherish the diversity we have built and look forward to ensuring this continues.
We will be implementing an internal reporting policy of any anti-inclusive behaviour to share with our entire team and our supply chain.
We remain committed to celebrating BIPOC in not just our marketing efforts but across our company in every way. We are proud to work with such incredible voices in the community.
