ANTI-RACISM PLAN

At Heuss Design, we see social responsibility not as a risk, but rather a reward. It is by celebrating the limitless potential of a more diversified and equitable workforce that we create space for everyone regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, religion or age. 

We stand firmly with the Black Lives Matter movement and take action by donating to organizations, signing petitions, educating ourselves, elevating the voices of Black people and planning for future anti-racist practices. To date, this has looked like:

Working with BIPOC educators and coaches for help with mindset work, affirmative action plans and social media strategy.

Making all design services complimentary for BIPOC WOMXN as a small measure of our gratitude to the time they spend educating white people for free, every single day. 

Setting goals to hire BIPOC developers, contractors and virtual assistants as well as to partner with BIPOC creatives at least 50% of the time.

Connecting with BIPOC clients for referrals for at least 50% of future business.

Understanding that there is no checklist when it comes to ANTI-RACISM WORK, and instead that it is made up of hundreds of thoughts and actions day in and day out.

Removing barriers for contractors working with us to ensure a culture of flexibility and true open-door policies.
