AMA Iowa Commitment to Social Justice
Across the country, there are a lot of emotions welling up right now - we acknowledge this and don’t presume any of us can fully understand how these events are impacting each of us. As an organization and as individuals, we strive to create an inclusive community where every single person is welcome. We oppose and stand against all forms of racism, bigotry, discrimination, intolerance, and any other form of named or unnamed hatred.
The American Marketing Association of Iowa (AMA Iowa) was built to connect, support and educate the Iowa marketing community. We know we have an obligation to you and the people we serve. You are the people who so often speak on behalf of the organizations we work with - a big responsibility, especially in the days to come.
We know that actions speak louder than words.
We take this as an opportunity to examine our own privileges, review the processes and structures we have in place that may have posed as barriers, and transform our organization for the better. In addition, we promise to you, our community, to incorporate programming that addresses how we can take up our role in opposing racism and injustice in the work we do as marketers.
Our Board of Directors is eager to roll up our sleeves and do everything we can to advance this important work.
Together, let’s all commit to being part of needed change.
