Righteous Belonging Commitment 2.0
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. Now, more than ever, it is important that we take the leap from simply saying it, and actively doing it.
This is our renewed 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.
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 anti-racism and anti-discrimination. While we acknowledge that no one company or organization can mandate such a desire for harmony among all people, we believe that our company can lead this charge with love, empathy and selflessness - and change the world.
We as a team 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 fulfill this commitment must be full of love as well. We actively work to recruit, hire and promote members from marginalized communities including BIPOC, LGBTQ+, neo-diversity, people with disabilities, and prioritize showcasing this diversity in our marketing partnerships and collaborations.
We are respectful to one another in our words, actions and intentions. By serving as a connector of people from different backgrounds, we can understand and appreciate people for who they are and erode prejudice formed by unconscious biases, misconception, misinformation, or misunderstanding. Everyone is entitled to respect, and we will uphold this in our company with zero-tolerance for such behaviours, no matter what. Safety and belonging are the foundation of our organization, and must be honoured everyday, in every way.
THE BELONGING COMMITMENT
By signing below, I agree to treat all people in the Righteous Community, and those around us - regardless of their race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age - with respect and dignity, and without judgement or bias.
