In lieu of publishing a blog post this week, we’re taking time to listen to the BIPOC community and to continue to educate ourselves on systemic racism that exists globally. We are a diverse team at Nimbus, and as such we understand that working towards equality takes hard work, difficult conversations, and time spent learning about the daily experiences of others.
We realize that it is not enough to stay silent and listen. We also have a platform which we are using to highlight Black voices and organizations, investigations into systemic racism, as well as supporting initiatives planned by our partners across North America.
At Nimbus, our goal is to support educational communities in which all members can create meaningful connections and work to their highest potential. We stand against racism in all forms and work to break down barriers where we see they exists – both in our own institutions and others’.
