At Bright.md, we are driven by four core values: excellence, stewardship, compassion, and dignity.
It is particularly with the value of Dignity in mind that we can confidently and unequivocally state that we support the Black Lives Matter movement and all it stands for, without hesitation or nuanced explanation.
Systemic racism, white privilege, and white supremacy are complicated problems that have been sown and propagated by white people for more than 400 years of America’s history and have plagued Black people as long. The fact that these issues have been entrenched for almost half a millennium doesn't absolve us of the responsibility to make progress now. Today. It’s far past time.
We are taking time to educate ourselves, encouraging each other to have uncomfortable awakenings and conversations, and really, truly listen to the voices that need to be heard.
We are committed to identifying and doing what needs to be done, collectively and as individuals. We will accelerate our work in product, processes, and culture. And we will report out on the results of that work. Until dignity is a truly universal value, we will continue to learn, grow, and show up for others.
