We need to build a future where everyone is valued, treated with respect and has equal access to opportunities.  We established the Unity and Social Justice portal because we believe real change starts with understanding, and to achieve that, we need to listen and be open to having tough conversations. We launched a portal with resources to help, and encourage you to engage with each other. To our colleagues who are hurting right now, you are not alone. Please reach out to others, seek support from Employee Resource Groups and leverage the NGCare/Employee Assistance Program (EAP) resources available to you and your family.  

Visit the Social Justice & Unity portal for more information.
