A Message from Carl Daikeler, CEO Beachbody
I wanted to take a moment and share how we are being proactive regarding the current environment of long overdue dissatisfaction with the distribution of rights and freedom in our country and society at large.
We are now going to be more active and realistic as a company in addressing the inequality experienced by so many, whether in our company, our state, the country or the world.
First, so you understand that I have publicly stated where I stand and that I intend to do something about it, this is a post I shared over the weekend:
Secondly, I made a commitment to donate $1M to the NAACP. Here is the official statement:
On behalf of Beachbody and all its divisions, shareholders, management, staff, trainers and coaches, the Beachbody Foundation is donating $1 million to the NAACP to further their stated objectives and vision, and Beachbody commits to acknowledge and be a part of reconciling the problem of racial inequality and race-based injustice in the world.
I hope you will join me in seeing the reality of inequality as it is, addressing that reality, and helping us improve as a corporate citizen to be part of a solution so urgently needed. We have been delinquent in our acknowledgement, but we are resolved to help be part of the solution as of this day.
Thank you for giving us a platform from which do help improve the world.
