Statement on the Death of George Floyd
June 2, 2020
By now you are aware of the news of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. Without question, this was a tragedy and, sadly, it is not an isolated event. It speaks to the tremendous work we need to do as a nation to eliminate injustice toward people of color.
On behalf of Ulteig’s executive leadership team, know that we condemn racism and discrimination of any kind. We endorse an environment that celebrates diversity, whether that is within the walls of our own organization or in the communities where we live and serve our clients and beyond.
At Ulteig, our culture is built upon respect and doing what is right. Our goal is for all to feel welcome, valued and have equal opportunity for success. It is consistent with our values and incumbent on each of us to act with integrity and to be engaged and concerned citizens. Don’t miss the chance to be a force for good – speak up when you witness bias or mistreatment. Embrace diversity and learn from perspectives that are different from your own.
Our thoughts are with Mr. Floyd and his family, as well as Minneapolis-St. Paul and the communities around the country that continue to feel the pain of the resulting violence and destruction. The Ulteig leadership team is committed to cultivating a workplace and broader community that prioritizes equality and contributes to the greater good.
