As we navigate this issue as a company, it is important that we check our privilege, acknowledge our role in perpetuating predominantly white spaces, and recognize the systems of inequality that organizations like ours have been complicit in. It is imperative that we support the Black members in our community and our organization. Words have power, but actions create change. As an organization we will hold ourselves accountable for our inaction in the past and for our actions in the future. We have to do better. We will do better. We will spend this time reflecting inward and creating a plan of action to see how we, as a company, can better support and amplify Black voices on stage and within our UCLA community.
