June 2, 2020 (Suwanee, GA) — As with many of you, we are deeply disturbed by what unfolded in Minneapolis last week and saddened to see the pain, frustration and anguish boil over in communities following the death of George Floyd.
In our workforce and in our communities, AMES’ commitment to inclusion and belonging is unwavering. It is critical to those we serve and grounded in our company values.
We are a diverse community here at AMES and that diversity is one of our key strengths. It shows up in how we care for one another – walking in each other’s shoes, joining forces for the greater good and respecting one another no matter what our race or ethnicity. We will continue to uphold the commitment of mutual respect in everything we do. Discrimination and intolerance have no place in our business and will not be permitted in any form.
As a company, we stand against racism and we stand for inclusion. Through this period of unrest and uncertainty, the safety of all our staff and customers is our number one priority. We will move forward together.
Be well and stay safe.
