A Statement from our CEO regarding recent events
As an industry, and community, we have all watched with broken hearts as our country has been roiled by the loss of trust between citizens and the institutions sworn to protect us. This conversation transcends business, politics, and more because it centers around the value of human life and requires us to empathize with those who experience discrimination and police violence disproportionately.
Headquartered in Tulsa, Ok, the site of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, these issues are especially close to home. We at IMAX whole-heartedly support and empathize with the peaceful demonstrations demanding justice for George Floyd and others impacted by systematic discrimination. We stand behind our employees, customers, and friends by saying BLACK LIVES MATTER and also acknowledge there is work we must do to make our company, and this industry, a more inclusive space for Black businesses, designers, and consumers.
What makes this industry amazing are the diverse and creative minds that propel innovation and inspire change – we believe a more inclusive environment can benefit us all. We are listening, we are learning, and we are reflecting on how we can and will do better to help move our industry and this nation forward.
