As a step toward truth and reconciliation, Lotus would like to acknowledge that our company originated, and much of our team continues to live and work, on the traditional land of Ramaytush & Ohlone tribes.
As a globally dispersed team, we recognize the Indigenous Peoples who have called and still call the land we all currently occupy home.
