Thomson Reuters condemns racism, discrimination and hatred in all of its forms, and we’re disturbed by the ongoing violence against Asians and Asian-Americans. To our Asian colleagues, partners and communities: we see and stand with you during this time.
Celebrating achievements, challenging gender inequities, and creating an inclusive world were the three pillars of this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD) #ChooseToChallenge. In honor of IWD last week, we’d like you to meet some of the women of Thomson Reuters we’ve celebrated and the voices we’ve amplified through our #BeYouAtTR social campaign.
On International Women’s Day 2021, hear from Thomson Reuters leaders on why gender equity and allies are so important, how to challenge stereotypes and the importance of a diverse organization. What do you Choose To Challenge this International Women's Day?

Throughout February, we celebrated Black History Month in the U.S. and Canada. With weekly virtual events focused on Black Excellence, our Black Employee Network (BEN) planned a wide range of sessions and learnings for colleagues to celebrate and learn more about the history, achievements and contributions across the Black community. This photo was from our Black Excellence in Media session, which featured two external speakers, Professor Dolen Perkins-Valdez (American University) and Professor Soyica Colbert (Georgetown University). Our teammates, Tasha Hutchins and Rakiya Moore, both BEN co-chairs, were the hosts and moderators of the session.

"Growing up, I remember staying up late on Lunar New Year Eve with all my cousins at my grandparents' house. Traditionally, staying up late 守岁 shǒu suì is said to bring longevity to one's parents - the later you stay up, the longer they will live. We would play cards, eat Lunar New Year candies, launch different kinds of firecrackers, and watch old martial arts and folklore movies. Our aunts would sometimes even prepare late-night hot meals for us (yes, we were super spoiled). We would stay up until dawn and end the celebration by helping our aunts set up the table to pray to the Taoist gods. Now as an adult, I bring the excitement I had when I was growing up to our Asian Affinity Network (AAN). This year, our AAN put together virtual events and a compilation of photos and videos showcasing how we, as Thomson Reuters employees, are celebrating the Lunar New Year. I am so blessed to work for a company that values such diversity and inclusion, allowing me to celebrate and share this holiday where so many of my greatest memories began." Meet Chun-Yu a Strategy Manager in Dallas.
"Growing up, I remember hating my skin tone and wanting to be lighter - so much so that I used bleaching creams. I straightened my hair because my afro was looked at as “messy” or “wild.” I permed (the chemical process of straightening) my curly/kinky hair to death in my younger years. Beauty is my passion, and I see representation and ideals promoted in the media and within our communities that are catalysts for colorism and racism impacting our mental health. I could go on about the length of time it took me to remove those negative images of myself, and I want to break through these negative stereotypes. As a member of our Black Employee Network (BEN), I share how we can use mindfulness to be aware of our inner dialogue to rethink societal beauty standards and understand different human experiences. I amplify the voices of marginalized communities while fostering closeness among black and non-black racial groups. Being a part of BEN means I get to have a hand in racial healing within ourselves and each other." Meet Tina, a Technical Support Representative in Toronto.
