In response to the recent and ongoing public outcry for racial justice, the Board and Staff of the Smart Buildings Center is issuing a statement recognizing the urgency of this crisis and our commitment to support these important efforts particularly as they relate to the work of the SBC. To aid us in these efforts, we are pleased to announce the formation of an Advisory Committee comprised of racially and gender diverse industry and technical experts. Over the next several months, we will work with the SBC staff to recruit this group, which will help define the programming of the SBC with a lens toward diversity and inclusion in our programs and will also serve as a sounding board for technical inquiries and content development.
The cry for racial justice is not a moment in time and achieving the goals of justice requires each of us. At the Smart Buildings Center, we are committed to achieving a more just and equitable environment, especially as it relates to the buildings in which we all live and work.
