At LexisNexis, we are committed to inclusion and equality, and we stand in solidarity with Black communities. On the 19th June 2020, Mike Walsh, CEO, published the statement below, in relation to Black Lives Matter and equality in today's society.
By Mike Walsh, CEO – June 19, 2020
LexisNexis Legal & Professional condemns racism and discrimination
As the world grieves the brutal murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Sean Reed, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks and too many more, LexisNexis stands firmly against racism and discrimination. Confronted with the stark reality of systemic racism in society, we need to reexamine our role in advancing the rule of law and how our 10,600 colleagues can make an active and positive contribution to accelerate equality for all under the law, inclusion and diversity within our business and in the communities we serve—because Black Lives Matter.
LexisNexis recognizes that systems of inequality built over time can mask bias, even in the legal community that is a force for good. We are committed to rooting out systemic racism in its many forms. We have had an outpouring of ideas from our colleagues around the world for how we can build meaningful and impactful action plans to support our Black employees and communities.
We are focusing on three areas, guided by our mission to advance the rule of law and our overall Diversity & Inclusion strategy:
LexisNexis people around the globe express their solidarity toward eliminating racism. They have submitted hundreds of ideas, large and small, on how we can help address racial injustice. The proof of our commitment will be in the actions we proudly push forward to fight systemic racism. We believe we can make lasting and positive change in the fight against injustice for our employees, for our customers, and while strengthening the rule of law.
In addition to this statement, the LexisNexis Rule of Law Foundation published this statement on the 9th June 2020: LexisNexis Rule of Law Foundation – June 9, 2020: Statement on Recent Events.
As a business overall, LexisNexis are committed to building a global culture of inclusion, fairness and mutual respect every day. Our contribution to this is through our work to advance the rule of law through the LexisNexis Rule of Law Foundation – the foundation for the development of peaceful, equitable and prosperous societies. This supports the notion that we are all equal before the law.
The four elements of the Rule of Law advanced by the Foundation are:
