A statement from CEO Hikmet Ersek on racial equality

Regional News By Hikmet Ersek, Western Union CEO June 1, 2020

Western Union shares the pain and outrage we all have witnessed over the long-standing racial injustice against Black men and women in the United States.

Our hearts go out to the family of George Floyd and all who have lost loved ones to racial violence. The work of creating unity and justice, no matter what country in the world you call home, must be shared by everyone. 

As the leader of a company that has always served people across all societies globally, I feel passionately that real equality means making everyone feel respected and included in their community—whether civic, cultural, or economic.
