Career Path Services Stands Against Racism and Hate

At Career Path Services, we are deeply saddened and disturbed by the recent incident of racist abuse directed at the University of Utah women’s basketball team in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. We strongly condemn this act of hate, which does not represent our values as an organization or as individuals.

This incident serves as a stark reminder of the critical importance of Career Path Services’ ongoing efforts to foster a culture of inclusion, respect, and equity. We are committed to embedding racial equity, diversity, and inclusion into every aspect of our work. However, we recognize that this work extends beyond our organization. Each of us has a responsibility to actively combat racism and bias in our communities.

Bias, stereotypes, and microaggressions can exist in both overt and subtle ways, and none of us are immune to unconscious biases. It is crucial that we continually strive to identify and address them. This requires ongoing learning, self-reflection, and personal growth. It means speaking out against hate and discrimination when we encounter it. And it means taking action to create a more just and equitable society for all.

As the late civil rights leader John Lewis said, “Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.”  Combating racism and bias demands active engagement We are committed to push forward in our efforts to build a more inclusive organization and community.

We stand in solidarity with the University of Utah women’s basketball team and all those impacted by racism and hate. Together, we will work towards a future where incidents like this are a thing of the past.
