The year 2020 has not been easy, and as of this weekend it’s clear we’re facing yet another stressful event for this country as a whole - and our team. This morning during our leadership meeting we discussed several things we can do as a company.
Similar to our COVID response, we’ll be kicking off a social media outreach campaign to make Tess available for free to more people in need, for those affected by social justice problems. We estimate that we will help at least 100,000 people this way.
If our employees choose to donate to an organization dedicated to addressing racism or the impacts of discrimination and violence, X2 will match that donation and direct it towards our COVID / Social Justice campaigns.
Most importantly, in alignment with X2’s mission, core values, and culture, we want to make clear what needs to be said - We do not tolerate discrimination. We do not tolerate violence against any person or group based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual preference, disability, religion, political beliefs, or for being a human. We strive to listen, learn, and foster an environment of physical and psychological safety for all.
Remember that just because we are a mental health company does not mean we are all experts in this type of counseling - and it is okay to not know what to say. But we do want to equip you with the right resources to offer. If you find yourself struggling to process and cope with recent events, you are not alone! Our employees can find stigma-free mental health assistance through our EAP, through your manager, or by using Tess yourself.
