We will continue to solicit feedback to recognize and address our blind spots and take strides to mitigate bias in our systems, communications, and processes. Our day-to-day practices reflect our core values and who we are, and we will continue to work diligently to foster an inclusive and equitable culture and bring that sense of inclusion and belonging everywhere and anywhere we do business.
