Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better. — Maya Angelou

The Allies of the Channel Council (#ACCouncil) is a coalition of diverse voices from the channel that are committed to taking a stand on Black Lives Matter and human rights, opposing systemic discrimination and promoting diversity and inclusion within our industry and beyond. It is made up of channel professionals of a range of colors and ethnicities to give us a diverse collection of voices to help inform our efforts.

“Taking a stand” doesn’t mean being confrontational, accusatory or condemning. It means making a commitment to education, awareness and open communication. To working for diversity and inclusivity, starting in the channel. To do the best we can as we work toward doing better.
