As a community of leaders committed to making the world better, the Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute abhors the racism, especially toward Blacks, that has been a tragic fabric of the US from its inception. The continued tragedies and abuses to Black Americans must end now. As a community committed to social justice, we will do all we can to lead positive change individually and as a DCI Community.
