The NIKE Chairman, CEO and President pens a message of unity

  1. “Nike believes in a world where everyone celebrates the power of diversity.”- Parker starts with the concept of individuality and how an eclectic group of people with a manifold of perspectives creates a strong community.
  2. “This is a policy we don’t support.”- A very straight forward line in NIKE’s stance on the ban; Parker brings to light that the ban creates a profound impact on the lives of the Americans, affecting members of families, friends and the entire community.
  3. “Today. I’m thinking of everyone who is impacted like Sir MO Farah.”- He writes about the personal impact it has had on his life by illustrating the case of Olympic Gold Medalist, Sir MO Farah. The Somalian-born athlete is currently in a training camp in Ethiopia, unsure about whether he would be granted entry into the USA where he resides with his wife and children.
  4. “Nike stands together against bigotry and any form of discrimination.”- Given that Nike is such a large company, their stance against the blatant discrimination of any demographic provides insight that there are like minds in America who believe in equality for all people.
  5. “We’ve learned that on the field of play where fairness and mutual respect are the rule, not the exception.”- Parker relates the discipline and values of the playing field to everyday life, where he instills the idea that respecting one another is not noteworthy but exceptional.
