TechNet's Commitment to Reversing Systemic Racism

By
TechNet President and CEO Linda Moore

All of us at TechNet, like millions of Americans, were shocked and horrified by the death of George Floyd and countless others like him, and our hearts break for each of their families.  Many of our member companies have made themselves heard on this matter and have committed to doing better for Black Americans.  TechNet stands in solidarity with Black Americans and the peaceful protestors working to focus attention on the issue of systemic racism.

Our principles regarding discrimination have always been clear: "The technology industry is committed to promoting an inclusive workforce and nation that reflects the diversity of our customers and people.  To ensure that our economy remains robust and innovative, we support education, workforce development, and immigration policies that empower the best and brightest people to continue making important contributions to our nation and communities.  TechNet opposes all forms of discrimination on the basis of nationality, race, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, and gender identity."
