Righteous Belonging Commitment 3.0
At the heart of our mission is the idea of creating things that make the world more awesome. Fundamentally we have always embraced this in how we do business, how we build community, and how we create a welcoming place for everyone. This is not a statement, it is a way of being. You belong here.
This is our commitment to nondiscrimination and anti-racism within our community, company, and culture. Our “why” is to enrich people’s lives, and this includes creating safety and bringing together every human, no matter who they are, the colour of their skin, where they come from, how they worship, or whom they love.
In the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge that our company lives, works and plays on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
Discrimination has no place in our company
Every team member who has come before you has individually committed to create an environment of safety, anti-racism and anti-discrimination. We believe that our company can lead this charge with love, empathy and selflessness - and change the world.
As a team, we welcome others into our company, community and causes with a smile and an open mind. Bias, prejudice, racism, and any other forms of hatred have no place with us. Righteous is made with love, and so our desire to fulfil this commitment must be full of love as well. We actively work to recruit, hire and promote members from marginalized communities including Black, Indigineous, Persons of Colour, 2SLGBTQ+, people with disabilities, and prioritize showcasing this diversity in our supplier relationships, partnerships and collaborations.
We are respectful to one another in our words, actions, intentions and create a safe space free from violence, intimidation, aggression and/or harassment. By serving as a connector of people from different backgrounds, we can understand and appreciate people for who they are and play a role in eroding prejudice formed by unconscious biases, misconception, misinformation, or misunderstanding from our lived experiences. Everyone is entitled to respect, and we will uphold this in our company with zero-tolerance for any behaviour that doesn’t honour this commitment, no matter what. Safety and belonging are the foundation of our organization, and must be upheld everyday, in every way.
