“The recent killings of more members of the black community in the
US leave us devastated and heartbroken. “Their lives, and the lives of
all black people taken by violence, mattered,” reads a statement by
the group’s CEO, Helena Helmersson, posted to the company’s blog
page.

H&M plans to provide its colleagues with resources to help educate
on implicit bias and to assemble a task force of black leaders to help
advise the company on further strides it can make. Additionally, H&M
plans to develop a stronger relationship with historically black
colleges and universities in the U.S and increase community events to
empower the black community.

Helmersson continued, “We also acknowledge our past mistakes and
they have made us acutely aware of how much we still need to learn. As
a company, we are growing, but we can and must do better. We re-commit
to taking tangible steps to challenge racism and support our
colleagues, customers and communities. Symbolic support is not enough
– we will take action.”
