I am excited to recognize Juneteenth with the Micron team tomorrow. We are clearing our busy calendars to spend time to reflect, learn and celebrate alongside so many others around the nation. We have several great events planned throughout the day, including:
Breaking Down Racism and Injustice Our SVP of Human Resources, April Arnzen will lead this fireside chat, which features several thought leaders, including Idaho State Senator Cherie Buckner-Webb, Boise State University President Marlene Tromp, and David Jones from Stanford Health.
Black Employee Network Town Hall Our President and CEO (who is joining our BEN employee resource group as co-sponsor) will lead this discussion. We are inviting our entire team to attend. Open conversation and connection amongst our team members has been a vital part of building understanding, empathy, and allyship so far.
Black-Owned Business Roundtable We are also hosting a Black-owned business virtual roundtable discussion, which includes members from several of our U.S. communities. We want to help support minority entrepreneurship and are eager to learn more about how we can be part of a community effort to ensure these businesses grow and thrive.
If you're interested in learning more about Juneteenth, the National Museum of African American History and Culture is a great resource.
