Happy Juneteenth! Juneteenth (June 19th, 1865) is an annual holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States and has been celebrated by African-Americans since the late 1800s.

Recognizing Juneteenth in the workplace can strengthen a company’s commitments to its mission, vision, and values to promote a diverse and inclusive workplace and to foster social and racial justice. RMSHRM encourages HR leaders to consider ways that your workplace can recognize the importance of Juneteenth such as setting this day as a holiday, volunteer day, or DEI learning day.
