Black Lives Matter: our commitment

A statement from the Board of Emerald Publishing 

The team at Emerald have been taking some time to reflect on recent events and our response. We believe that Black lives matter, today and every day, and that injustice and intolerance must end. 

We are horrified not only by George Floyd’s unjust death, but also Ahmaud Arbery, Amadou Diallo, Sandra Bland, Breonna Taylor, Stephen Lawrence, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, and many others who have lost their lives as a result of racism. We stand in solidarity with everyone fighting for racial justice around the world, and with our colleagues and customers who are experiencing pain and grief now, and in the past.

The global inclusivity report 2020

As part of our ever-evolving understanding of what inequality feels like and how we may start to tackle it, we’ve commissioned a global report on inclusivity; this is a small step in understanding the challenges people face and that we must face into in order to create a fairer, more inclusive society.
