at 17twelve, we're committed to fighting against racism and social injustice. below are a few of the steps we're taking in that fight:

  • Listening, learning, and educating ourselves on what it means to be an anti-racist ally
  • Speaking out against racism and discrimination
  • Choosing to invest where we can in Black and POC businesses
  • Supporting BIPOC non-profits and foundations who are on the front-lines of the social justice movement 

We stand for:

Diversity, inclusion, accountability, collaboration, and championing a supportive work environment where our team, clients, and members of our community all feel heard and valued.
