The recent violence and racial injustice in the U.S. has caused the entire world to aim a spotlight on the global issue of systemic discrimination and the inequities that follow. As a response, Nox Health formed our own Culture Committee to do our part in the stand against institutional racism and to advocate for the individuals or groups in our community who, we believe, align with these universal values.
We posed the question to ourselves: “What can we do—individually and collectively—to create the inclusive community everyone deserves?” As a healthcare company, we have a vested interest in eliminating healthcare disparities as well as assisting those entities that are working towards the same goal.
As we strive for an environment of anti-racism and anti-discrimination internally, we are also making our voices heard, externally, by organizing our first 5K run in support of the Center for Black Women’s Wellness and the Icelandic Mental Health Alliance. These organizations work to eliminate inequities in the community by providing resources, both physically and mentally, to our underserved populations.
Sigurjón Kristjánsson – Nox Health, CEO – once stated, “No one should be afraid to walk the streets of their communities in their own skin, and everyone should be honored for who they are. It is time for a change, it is time to be better.” We hope that you walk, run, bike, surf, ski, swim with us June 5-6, 2021
