I did a scan over the past two days (back to 5/25/20) of 9 access control and security brands that have publically made statements as of 6/3. See the image attached.

Since I believe this is a subsequent fabric change in our society and has a historic context, I think this conversation is important as an industry.

The decisions companies make in communication and marketing right now (internally and externally) seem like a historical moment and opportunity. Action and inaction are all action. This is not about being "woke."

There are a bunch of questions and I want to help us start to discuss. I do not have the answers. Such as, is this a reflection that our industry does not understand its importance in the larger societal conversation? What is our role in this? Do we have the muscles?

I don't know, but I want to have a conversation.
