Formerly, In an open letter, Amway CEO Milind Pant stated that black lives matter. Back in date, Amway was founded as a business open yo all irrespective of their heritage, education qualification, religion or background. He recognized their purpose of bringing people together across the globe for helping each other live better and healthier lives. Events in recent weeks have brought to light deep scars within society, and for many, our society isn’t working. We must seek to understand and act to do our part to correct this in order to truly live that purpose.
He assured that Amway stands with the black people and their call for equal justice. Amway has recently started making donations who work in the field of social equality and correcting a long history of injustice – The NAACP and the National Urban League. It has also launched unity circles to encourage its employees for sharing their stories and supporting each other. In these groups, they will be provided resources to help them listen, learn and act against racism. Pant told they are strengthening our resolve, in partnership with our Amway Business Owners, on our stance that hate and racism have never had a place in Amway; and that everyone is welcome and included here. Earlier this year, they had launched new culture principles at Amway that have their foundation in their long-standing Founders’ Fundamentals of freedom, family, hope and reward. Yet for too many, for too long, freedom and hope for the future have been in question. It should never be that way.
There is great power in all of us working together to end racism. Amway vows to be part of the solution. It will hold itself accountable to these words. It assures to help change the future.
