Letter from Kuma

Dear friends –

I hope this note finds you all healthy and in good spirits.

Nothing is as it was a week ago, let alone a day ago. From work to home life to our community, we’ve all seen major changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re all doing our best to adjust. As Mosaic adapts, we’ll continue to serve you and help navigate our ever-evolving workplace landscapes.

This crisis will have ripple effects, and it’s important to be there for one another. Not everyone can miss a day of work, and large numbers of people in our community don’t have the disposable income to stock up on food and supplies or a safe home in which to practice social distancing. While each of us shoulders a different load, equity and inclusion remain crucial considerations.

Mosaic’s work is about making connections. Our response to COVID-19 isn’t just about how we wash our hands or stay a safe distance from each other; it’s about how we can successfully shift our perspective and keep striving for a future in which everyone can be safe and healthy.

Under the current circumstances, Mosaic’s strategies will pivot even as we continue to celebrate diversity, champion equity and cultivate inclusion. We’re focused on providing the partnership, education and resources that offer value to you and your organization as you navigate this new – though hopefully, temporary – normal.

Our next meeting is scheduled for April 21 and will take place virtually. Be on the lookout for additional details on how to join us remotely.

We can do great things together, and your partnership is greatly appreciated. As always, I’m available via email at kumaroberts@tulsachamber.com, as well as my LinkedIn profile and Mosaic’s Facebook pages. I’m here to ensure we further our mission of leading, leveraging and educating the business community on the value of diversity, equity and inclusion as a competitive advantage.

With gratitude,

Kuma Roberts
Vice President of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
