AVANT stands with the Black community, our coworkers, Trusted Advisors, customers, family, friends and all people opposed to systemic racism. We are heartbroken and angered by the tragic death of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many painful examples before them. It is disheartening to see that the hard fought social gains of decades past have fallen short of the peace and opportunity to which we are all entitled as human beings. Discrimination has no place in our diverse community.
Action is imperative. The anger runs deep, and while we don’t know the answers, the journey starts with listening and understanding and, above all, a willingness to impact change. We are humbly committed to addressing racism and intolerance in every corner of our community.
Join us as we move forward towards a better future.
Ian and Drew
