Build Community Through Empathy
One of our core values here at Accent Decor is building community through empathy. But what does it mean to truly build community through empathy? To us, it means listening to the perspectives of others. Listening in order to understand what a person is experiencing, and how a person is feeling. When we are willing to listen and learn, it brings us closer together, builds trust, and that is what fosters a true community.
Focused listening will teach us that racism and systemic injustice are weeds deeply rooted in this country. A weed that has been growing for over 400 years isn’t going to change overnight. It will require long-term action. Accent Decor stands in solidarity with the Black community, and we are committed to doing our part and taking action to change the systems and perspectives that brought us to this point.
Accent Decor will continue to listen and learn in order to build community through empathy. We hope you will do the same. Read our action plan below which details our commitment to fight systemic racism in our organization, industry and country. Together, we can build a more beautiful community and a more equitable world; a world in which everyone recognizes that Black Lives Matter.
