AUTM's Statement on Racism Aimed at Asian Americans
AUTM condemns racism of any kind. The events that have unfolded over the past year aimed at Asian Americans are impacting our colleagues, friends, families and partners. AUTM stands with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, and pledges to use its voice to help us do better. We encourage our Members and partners to take time to discuss these events with colleagues and find support, whether through Employee Assistance Programs or privately. We stand united to support everyone’s right to an equitable and inclusive community free from bias and hate.
