Progressive employer Medtronic has pledged its support to the Ascend Leader's Action Agenda from Ascend Leadership Foundation which is working to address the adverse impacts of the global COVID-19 crisis.

The 100+ Corporations & Partner Organizations backing the COVID-19 Action Agenda are leading conveners for business leaders in championship for diverse communities. These companies are redoubling on their missions of promoting inclusion and standing together in collaboration to address the consequences of COVID-19.

"While low-wage earners are particularly vulnerable during this public health and economic crisis, the coronavirus outbreak has also claimed disproportionate numbers of lives in communities of color and has given rise to a surge of anti-Asian sentiment," says Ascend Leadership Foundation.

Following a specific Action Agenda

The foundation calls on its members, partners and associates to join them along with the growing list of Supporting Companies in affirming the following 5-Point Action Agenda:

  • Promote Inclusion: Advocate for a diverse and inclusive workplace and society
  • Raise Awareness: Highlight the unique impacts of COVID-19 on vulnerable groups
  • Denounce Bias: Encourage individuals to report virus-linked discriminatory acts against Pan-Asians and other targeted groups and communities in the workplace and in public
  • Support Communities: Contribute time, knowledge and / or other resources to aid frontline workers, COVID-19 victims and families
  • Give Donations: Provide funds and / or other resources to support vulnerable populations of people and impacted businesses
