Michael K. Powell, President & CEO, NCTA – The Internet & Television Association.

As we attempt to heal the deep wounds affecting our society, businesses have a moral obligation to hold themselves accountable and evaluate how they contribute to the tangled web of systemic racism. Our industry is one that wields great economic power, and we have tremendous social influence as content creators and conduits of information for billions around the world. Almost every major business has made a public commitment to diversity and inclusion following the recent social justice movement; however, we need to move past statements and spring into action if we are going to make real and measurable progress.
