Dear Colleagues,

Witnessing what is happening in Ukraine, leaves us feeling helpless. We have pain in our hearts and confusion in our heads. How and why is this happening? None of us understand or have the answers.

What we do have is the ability to support the members of our Multicultural family, who are concerned about loved ones in Ukraine and in Russia. To those of you who are impacted, please know you are not alone. I am always here to listen and support you in any way I can. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me, or any member of the management team.

Fondly,

Carolyn
