DEI and Engagement: Recognizing Juneteenth and Pride Month
The month of June is a big month focusing on inclusion in the workplace. We celebrate Pride all month long and June 19th is the celebration of Juneteenth. Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. It is also often observed for celebrating African-American culture. For Pride Month, this celebration is a whole month dedicated to uplifting the voices of LGBTQIA people and celebrating LGBTQ culture and history. While both of these celebrations are extremely important in our personal culture they are even more important within the culture of the workplace.
