Team members and friends,
I realize these are extremely unsettling times and there is deeply rooted heartbreak and pain being experienced by many across our country.
There are no words to convey the suffering caused by the senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many other men and women in the Black community.
It is important for us to be part of the change that is needed, and to get to a better place of social equality and justice for all. We believe in a united direction that includes accountability and respect.
Behr has built a culture of inclusion by giving back to organizations that support diversity and human rights. We will continue to make this a priority for our organization, while identifying new ways to promote actionable change to do our part in contributing to the long-term solution.
I, along with the entire Behr Paint Company leadership team, recommit to listening and learning, enabling conversations about race within our teams and communities, and will continue to cultivate an environment where people of all backgrounds feel safe and heard.
