“As a Black woman who works at Adidas, my experiences have never been business as usual.”
Julia Bond, an assistant apparel designer at the sportswear giant, says she had resigned herself to experiencing and witnessing racism at work — until she saw the George Floyd video.
Today, we speak to Ms. Bond, a woman who has brought the global racial reckoning to the company’s front door.
Wanting more than just policies and programs, she has been protesting in front of the company’s Portland headquarters every day since June, awaiting an apology from leadership and an admission that they have enabled racism and discrimination.
