At Cognella, our team operates according to the idea of “Brains + Heart.” This means we combine equal parts intellect and compassion to act with professionalism, deep empathy, and a commitment to quality. For our team, “Brains + Heart” simply translates to “Do the right thing.”
Taking a public stance against racism is the right thing to do. George Floyd, and countless others, are victims of racial inequality and are now tragically voiceless. We all must be that voice.
In solidarity with the Black community, we are using our privilege to raise our voices for those who would be silenced. We are speaking up for the millions of Americans and individuals around the world who are affected by racism and inequality every day. We are lifting our voices to call for equity, social justice, and an end to systemic oppression.
In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality … I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”
Now is the time to act with truth, love, compassion, bravery, and unity.
