作为一个公司, 威廉希尔体育最珍视的价值观之一就是培养一个安全的, 协作的环境，让威廉希尔体育发挥出最好的一面. 威廉希尔体育相信, 毫不含糊地, that everyone deserves to be in a place where they feel welcome as they are. 就像世界上很多人一样, we at 威廉希尔 were shocked and outraged by the senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna泰勒, 以及去年警察暴力的其他受害者. 不幸的是，系统性的种族主义依然存在, and the powerful social reaction highlighted how so m任何 of us felt individually, 作为同事一起工作. We decided to take a stand as a result, because in the words of our 首席执行官...
“It’s come to a point where we can no longer ignore what’s going on in the real world.”
自5月下旬以来, 威廉希尔体育花了很多时间准备, 学习, and team building as a comp任何 to discover what we could do to help promote 多样性, 股本, 和包容. 今天, we want to announce 威廉希尔’s Taking a Stand initiative with the goal to promote 多样性, 股本, 和包容.
威廉希尔体育定义的多样性, 股本, 包容是促进公平的, 安全, and collaborative environment where different personal experiences are valued, 包括种族, color, 宗教, 性, 性别认同/表达式, 性取向, 家庭地位, 资深地位, 国籍和血统, 医疗条件, 残疾的人, 遗传特征, 和年龄.
The Taking a Stand initiative is a volunteer committee open to all Celigans, with strong representation from underrepresented voices within our comp任何.
The purpose of the committee is to identify and work on racial justice, 多样性, 股本, 以及基于员工反馈的包容性举措, 最佳实践, 和模型.
Build a culture of global 多样性, 股本, 和包容 at 威廉希尔
We’ve made a series of 多样性 和包容 training courses available to all employees.
We’ve invited all employees to participate in a roundtable to discuss and learn about unconscious biases.
威廉希尔体育已经与 握手 招聘多样化的候选人.
威廉希尔 is currently pursuing volunteering and donation opportunities with numerous nonprofits that pursue a stated mission of 股本 and justice.
Build a sustainable infrastructure for 多样性, 股本, 和包容
We’re building a process to recruit more volunteers for the initiative from within the comp任何, and identifying the committee or initiatives that align with their interests.
The above covers the actions we’ve taken so far through December 31, 2020; we’ve defined longer term goals and initiatives throughout 2021 and beyond. 表明立场不是一个暂时的主动行动, but a resolution we are committing to as long as there is inequality and injustice.
We are committed to making a difference and it was important to us to go on record and be held accountable to the commitments we make. 在发表公开声明之前, we wanted to first make sure that we could truly hold ourselves accountable to 任何 commitments we make publicly. We did not want to speak about a very serious issue that perpetually affects the lives of marginalized Americans without following up with measurable action. Although a single corporate entity can’t solve perpetual social problems, 威廉希尔体育确实希望尽威廉希尔体育所能，尽威廉希尔体育所能. 展望未来, we pledge to our goals and to be more engaged with our global community so that we can be part of the solution in achieving social 股本.
