COVID-19 & Racial Injustice Statement
We at Genesis Consultancy (GC) recognise the devastating impact Coronavirus continues to have on individuals, families, communities and businesses across the globe. We support all key workers who continue to make a huge difference to all our lives, including those providing life saving services and treatment. GC remains committed to our values and principles of equality and addressing oppressive practices.
We recognise, support and stand in solidarity with our communities who have been disproportionately impacted by inequality and this pandemic; Black people and people of colour, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex peoples, disabled people, those living in and affected by poverty, people who are affected by mental illness, and people with insecure immigration status, the young and older communities.
We live and exist in solidarity with all our Black sisters, brothers, non-binary peoples and communities in the UK and across the globe who have fought the daily oppression of racial injustices for decades.
For us, this is not a moment, a hashtag or performative, but centuries of lifetime struggles, of revolutionary and resistance work. Our existence and lives has and will always matter, and GC will continue our work towards a world transformed from injustice and oppression.
We know the importance of working collaboratively, especially during these extraordinary times, and remain committed to this.
As we all continue to adjust to our new normal, here at GC we shall go on ensuring everyone's comfort and safety remains our priority.
During this period of lockdown we have introduced care techniques whilst adopting transformative working via video conferencing for all our client relationships, and GC family. Some of which includes; restricted work hours, working from home, adhering to breaks and limited screen-time use.
We look forward to building safe, new and transformative ways of working with everyone and impact our world.
