Equity and Inclusion Update

After CEO Rick Wright released a statement about Black Lives Matter on June 12th, we talked with nearly every team member (1,300 at all stores) and held work sessions with our Equity and Inclusion Committee (EIC) to determine actions we can take to create long-lasting positive change throughout our company.

Our Dress Code Practice

Instead of focusing on a symbol and individual expression, we are working on company-wide actions that we believe will make a difference and lead to change.

A Message from Our CEO

This has been a difficult time for our nation and our community. I am saddened by the recent events, which weigh heavily on all of us. It is heartbreaking. Racial bias of any kind is unacceptable, and we must take steps to eradicate it from our communities.
