As an organization whose mission is based on equality, WICT is committed to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of life. We will never stop using our platform to shine a spotlight on issues of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Regarding the ongoing protests and demonstrations in the U.S. and abroad, as an organization whose mission is based on equality, WICT is committed to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of life. We stand firm with our partners and the communities we serve to eradicate systemic racism like that we witnessed with George Floyd and many others. WICT stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. In addition, we will address it during all of our programs for the foreseeable future. We will never stop using our platform to shine a spotlight on issues of diversity, equity and inclusion. All of us wish for peace and wellness for all of our brothers and sisters in our extended community.

Our hope is that together, we will rise above and emerge more united than ever before. Be well, stay strong.
