It is more clear than ever that systemic racism remains deeply rooted in our society and in our industry. We have not done enough to actively combat this reality, in our company, in our imagery, and in our business practices - and that ends today. We stand in solidarity with BIPOC communities. We pledge to be advocates and to take action, and as mothers, to hold ourselves accountable in taking concrete steps to make this a world a better place for our children.
In order to start this process, we are committed to long-term change that will alter the DNA of HATCH. We accept and acknowledge we will make mistakes along the way and we welcome the feedback of the team and our community to ensure we stay on track. We will be transparent in our actions.
HATCH was founded with the belief that motherhood is a common denominator which unites us all. Together, we have the honor and responsibility to be part of the tide of change. We promise to do better and to earn your trust as a destination for all women.
