On Hate Speech and the 8x8 Community
It has come to our attention that a member of the 8x8 partner community was captured on social media making highly inappropriate remarks and racist views in public. Leadership must set an example for the rest of the organization and strive to embody the best of us and our values, not the worst. We have ended our business relationship with the partner, effective immediately. We will not dignify the statements by linking to them.
It is the steadfast belief of our executive leadership team, and the Board of Directors that hate speech has no place in the 8x8 community. We wholly reject the ideology outlined by this individual, and will continue to work with our employees, customers and partners to build an inclusive environment where all are welcome, encouraged and supported.
