We Are Listening.
We Stand By You.
At Birch River Design Group, we prioritize equality of opportunity and fair treatment of all of our employees. While we are proud of the culture that we work so hard to maintain, we cannot sit back while knowing that the inclusivity that we uphold is not widespread. We stand alongside all individuals fighting to end inequality.
The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery are simply the more recent souls that have been lost due to the continuing prejudice and hate that exists in the world we live in.
We strongly believe in community and have used our platform to build up those in the Scottsdale-Phoenix area. As a business, we will continue to use our platform to help out others around us. We have compiled a list of local BIPOC-owned businesses that you can support. We will continue to support these establishments in the fight against racism and injustice.
