At Good Chemistry we believe Black Lives Matter.
Good Chemistry Nurseries Founder/CEO Matthew Huron grew up with his father and his father’s partner in San Francisco’s Castro District. There, he witnessed discrimination toward ethnic minorities, racial minorities, people of gender fluidity and toward his father and his father’s partner who were threatened and discriminated against for their sexual orientation. Because of this experience Matthew vowed that in his personal and professional life he would treat people of all backgrounds and orientations with respect.
Today, Good Chemistry Nurseries is committed to providing a welcoming, safe and dignified environment for everyone we serve, regardless of race, color, national origin, physical or mental disability, religion, creed, age, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression.
As a company, Good Chemistry employs an array of ethnic, racial, sexual and gender diversity across each of our departments. We do this not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because we have found that diversity of backgrounds, experiences and ideas creates a competitive advantage for us. We think this is critical for our company’s success, the success of the cannabis industry, and for the success of our nation as a whole.
The murders of members of minority communities across the country speaks to a much larger issue of endemic and institutionalized racism and discrimination in our country. We support responsible police reforms and initiatives to end the senseless suffering that has plagued our nation for centuries.
Good Chemistry is proud to have earned the Black Cannabis Equity Initiative’s 2020 Social Equity Champion award.
