  Statement in Support of Black Lives Matter and Social Justice

Women in GIS stands by the call for racial equality for all, and we mourn the tragic deaths of innocent black human beings at the hands of law enforcement and others, and acknowledge the centuries of widespread systemic racial prejudice that have brought us to this moment.

Any form of discrimination is an infringement on ones’ human rights. The subjugation of any group (whether based on color, sex, gender, religion, citizenship, language, class, etc.) and ongoing inequality can only be overcome if we strive for justice and equality together. For most, this will require some hard reflection upon our own prejudices, but it is a necessary step if we are to come together.

As an organization open to ALL, we meet this moment not just by declaring our support for the Black Lives movement, but by moving forward with a deeper commitment to diversity, inclusivity and a willingness to forever evolve and change in order to be a part of the change.
