Black Lives Matter
iCRAG stands in support with all those seeking to end injustice and police brutality, striving to overcome oppression and racism, and advancing equal opportunity for all. On behalf of its members, iCRAG wishes to express our shock and grief at events which caused the death of George Floyd, and numerous other black and ethnic minority individuals due to police violence.
Recent incidents have served to remind us all that many structures that inhibit diversity and preserve racism still exist in our societies and fields of work. iCRAG acknowledges that inequality and prejudice are significant issues in the fields in which we operate. iCRAG is taking this time to listen, to reflect on what we can do better to promote diversity, combat injustice and fight prejudice. We are committed to collective learning on issues of racism, diversity and injustice, improving our own practices and to creating safe spaces for dialogue on these issues.
