While it has been challenging to hit an indefinite pause on the development of professional projects, relationships, and investments in the midst of COVID-19, there is a concurrent and globally historic social movement that reminds us of the imperative to re-learn the basics of empathetically participating in our own industry. Within the context of our careers, it will always be important to explore creatively and to continuously hone our knowledge of best practices in business, rights management, grant writing, marketing, and more, and taking the time to ensure our community is stronger, safer, more vibrant, welcoming and equitable is no different or less crucial. It’s vitally necessary that we educate ourselves on the intersecting systemic barriers faced by our peers who are Black, indigenous, of colour, disabled, women, non-binary, and in the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. It is our collective responsibility to proactively and effectively work toward understanding and dismantling these barriers through the language we use at home and at work, and within our roles, organizations, and circles of influence.
