The Black Employee Resource Group (BERG) invites its members and allies* to join us virtually on Zoom to commemorate the 157th anniversary of Juneteenth, when all enslaved people in the United States were finally freed on June 19, 1865 -- two years after the Emancipation Proclamation.
View event registration details and the program below.
*This event is open for anyone to attend but will prioritize Black community members to share at the appropriate time with a two-minute time limit.
Help us spread the word: tell your friends and colleagues.
