Diversity & Inclusion

Anti-Racism Resources

We know that we cannot claim to be committed to diversity and inclusion without speaking out against the overt and covert forms of racism faced by the Black community on a daily basis. To build diverse and inclusive workplaces, we need to start with equity. No workplace can be inclusive without making space for tough conversations and speaking up for what's right.


We're reading, we're listening, and we're educating ourselves on how we can do better. And we're working with the companies and leaders that partner with us to do the same—to not only speak out against injustice, but to take actions to create equity and combat racism within and outside of their organizations.

We shared some of the resources we've been using as an organization here, but we wanted to create this post to serve as a living document that we will continue to add to and update regularly. Have feedback or questions? Email us at hi@powertofly.com.

(And if you've read this far and find yourself questioning whether this strong of a reaction is really necessary, we'd like to challenge you to start here—and keep in mind that that article was written in 1989, but not much has changed since then.)
