STANDING UP AGAINST HATE

“I DON’T WORRY ABOUT PEOPLE WHO LOVE, I WORRY ABOUT PEOPLE WHO HATE.”

Racism, discrimination and hatred are wrong. In fact, each of those things kill human beings. The agency has a storied history of standing up to issues of racism, discrimination and hatred. The movement and energy always start with those who raise their voices and speak their truth. I am grateful to all of our employees who are speaking your heart and your truth with us. I and the rest of the leadership team will continue seeking opportunities to show up and speak up for each of you. Always. GSD&M is a safe zone. We are here to listen, support and advocate for each and every one of you, no matter what.

“WE ARE ALL CAPABLE OF BEING PART OF CHANGE.”

At GSD&M, we understand that diversity, equity and inclusion is all of our responsibility. And together, we will continue to make progress. Our industry, including each of our team members, has incredible power, and with that power comes the responsibility to help shape culture and drive conversations that promote more appreciation, celebration and understanding of historically marginalized communities. I am so grateful to be part of a leadership team that continues to embrace the GSD&M tradition of standing up for what is right for our people, our clients and our culture.

 

KEISHA TOWNSEND,
DIRECTOR OF DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
