My firm just recently addressed how they feel on the protesting events that have occurred in the Nation. Compared to Big 4, they are behind. Even though they support the movement, disappointed that it took them so long to say something.

Two thoughts; yes, it's very disappointing that it's taken/taking too long for so many, and secondly, I'm starting to get my hopes up. Can't let down my guard, but a lot of organizations and individuals are showing they understand and care. Now seems to be the best efforts towards real change in my lifetime.

Some of the delayed responses could be attributed to people at the top living in a bubble unfortunately. My spouse got an early message from their company that was completely tone deaf so he reached out to say as much. Since that time, a revised message has come out and a town hall is in the works. If leadership is out of touch and doesn’t have aware people around them, you’ll see lackluster responses.

I can completely understand that, the response was mindful and I can appreciate the delay better from your spouses experience. Thanks for sharing !

I completely agree. There are silver linings in the pandemic if change truly occurs from the movements across the world !
