SIIA President and CEO, Jeff Joseph statement:
SIIA congratulates President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their historic election win. In a year that featured critical, if difficult, discussions about race, ethnicity, and equity for our great nation, it is truly an American outcome that this election brings the first female Vice President the first of color, and first of a multiracial background. Celebrating diversity and equality of opportunity are strong values shared across our 700 member companies and organizations.
We also congratulate the newly elected and re-elected public officials in Congress and across state and local offices throughout the nation.
This election drove historic levels of participation while also spotlighting the passionate divide that afflicts our nation. We pledge to work with the incoming administration, the new Congress, and all parties truly interested in bridging this divide. Now is the time to come together. Greater unity will help us create jobs, grow our economy, and drive U.S. competitiveness. That’s the American way.
