TURO

Standing with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community

Below is an article originally published on March 3, 2021 and written by Andre Haddad, CEO. Go to Turo's company page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

I'm deeply disheartened to see the upsurge in violent crime against Asian Americans rattling the country from coast to coast. To reiterate our collective commitment to antiracism, racism and prejudice simply have no place here, neither in society, nor at Turo.

The notion of diversity and inclusion goes beyond the buzzword and taps into the very heart of the American dream — that anyone, regardless of color, race, or creed, is included in, and has access to, that dream. United we stand, divided we fall. As an immigrant myself, I know firsthand that division is counterproductive — diverse perspectives make us sharper, smarter, stronger. We are all united in our collective drive to strive, to achieve, to succeed, to collaborate, to innovate.

Our Asian American and Pacific Islander brothers and sisters contribute an invaluable perspective and enrich the American narrative — their voices cannot be silenced and their value cannot be diminished.

We join fellow Asian American and Pacific Islander leaders, organizations, and people across the country in condemning the horrific acts that have occurred. We do not tolerate any acts of racial discrimination at Turo or in our community — such acts go against our longstanding community guidelines and nondiscrimination policy.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: We stand firmly for diversity, inclusion, and belonging. We believe in connectedness and supportiveness. Diversity is strength. Inclusion is required. Belonging is critical.

The work continues, and we stand with you.

How I Took Action Against Anti-Asian Racism– At Work and In My Personal Life

If you've been paying attention to the news recently, you likely have noticed a sharp rise in Anti-Asian racism. Members of the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities have been vocal in bringing awareness to the heightened racial discrimination they have faced since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, which, in some cases, have had tragic consequences.

If you are not a member of the Asian-American community, you might feel powerless– as if you have no say in the matter. It's easy to believe that your actions aren't effective and cannot lend support to your colleagues and friends from the Asian-American community. But that is not the case– in reality, there are a number of actions you can take against Asian hate that can have real impact, in both your professional and personal life.

20 Lessons from 66 Working Moms Balancing Family and Career

Experience is the greatest teacher, and the experience of being a mom is particularly chock-full of learning opportunities.

We know from the examples set by our coworkers and friends just how good moms are at juggling competing responsibilities and priorities. ("If you want to make sure something gets done, give it to a busy person" would be even more accurate if it was changed to "give it to a working mom.")

So this Mother's Day, we decided to ask working moms at our partner companies about the secret sauce that connects parenting experience to being better and happier at work.
