Black Lives Matter: in our industry too

Mark Warburton

By Mark Warburton, Ivory Egg.

With the global protests against police brutality and racism, I’ve decided to step away from my usual subjects.

Although this isn’t my story to tell, I believe we should all be making a stand, otherwise change will never happen. We all have a role to play in ensuring equal rights and opportunities for all, but that alone is not enough. We need to take it a step further and actively stand up against all forms of racism, discrimination and hate crimes.

So instead of reading my article this month, I implore you to use the time to consider what more you can do personally, and as a business, to support the black community, research anti-racism and consider donating to one of the countless charities supporting these causes.

Thank you to KNXtoday for supporting me in this message.

Note from the Editor:

According to the Anti-Racism Digital Library, anti-racism can be defined as some form of focused and sustained action, which includes inter-cultural, inter-faith, multi-lingual and inter-abled (i.e. differently abled) communities with the intent to change a system or an institutional policy, practice, or procedure which has racist effects. If you would like to share any anti-racism resources, statements or practices your company has developed or used, please email and they will be added here.
