We at InVivo Biosystems would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of George Floyd. Now more than ever we need leadership, unity, and action to undo decades of discrimination and oppression. InVivo Biosystems stands in solidarity with those who are rightfully demanding justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Aubrey, and so many countless others who have died needlessly. No one should have to live in fear of a system that is supposed to protect them. InVivo Biosystems supports those who are peacefully protesting, and we encourage everyone to lift up their voices and work towards creating a more just, safe, and inclusive community for all.
We must do better. That is why we are committing to holding implicit bias training for all of our employees, along with racial and social sensitivity training. Awareness is the first step, and we are going to be providing our employees with educational resources on an ongoing basis so we can continue to learn. As a scientific company, we recognize that the Black community has been underrepresented in the field, and we are going to use our platform to highlight the research and voices of scientists of color.
