Comments from Red Hat CEO Paul Cormier

“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.” - Elie Wiesel

I want to say this unambiguously: Red Hat is not indifferent. We stand in solidarity with the Black community - our colleagues, customers, partners and neighbors - and all who are hurting right now in the fight against racism and injustice.

At Red Hat we default to open, and that also applies to how we treat one another. We strive to create an environment rooted in mutual respect where everyone belongs, has a voice and is supported. I have said before, in a different context, that we’re all in this together. That remains true: this is a time for unity and for us to come together for one another and our communities.

Our words are not enough. We will be making a financial contribution in support of equality and justice, to be selected by our Blacks United in Leadership and Diversity (B.U.I.L.D.) community.
