Utah Compact on Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Utah Compact on Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Haynie & Company proudly signed The Utah Compact on Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. Utah leaders created this compact to acknowledge racism and commit to ending it. As an organization, Haynie & Company rejects all forms of racism and injustice. We fully support our employees, clients, and friends in the fight against systemic racism.

The leaders at Haynie & Company are committed to fighting racism and discrimination. We will continue to implement anti-racism personnel policies and ongoing racial-equity training. Please join us in creating a culture of acceptance and justice. We are all in this together.

The Utah Compact on Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Therefore, we commit to, and invite other Utahns to commit to, these anti-racist principles and actions:

1. Acknowledgement and action – We acknowledge that racism exists, and our actions make a difference. We call out racism wherever we see it and take purposeful steps to stop it.

2. Investment – We invest our time and resources to create greater opportunity for people of color. Eliminating racial and ethnic disparities requires our significant effort and investment.

3. Public policies and listening – We advance solutions to racial ills by listening and creating policies that provide equal opportunity and access to education, employment, housing, and healthcare.

4. Engagement – We engage to effect change. Broader engagement, equitable representation, and deeper connection across social, cultural, and racial lines will uphold the principle – “nothing about us, without us.”

5. Movement, not a moment – Utahns unite behind a common goal to create equal opportunity. We affirm our commitment will not just be a passing moment, but a legacy movement of social, racial and economic justice.
