Juneteenth: HackerOne’s Day for Action

 |  HackerOne

Starting this Friday, June 19th will become HackerOne’s annual Day for Action. For Black Americans and communities of color around the globe, Juneteenth is a day of celebration and reflection, commemorating the emancipation of the last remaining slaves in the US.

Going forward, we will use this Day of Action to:

  • Reaffirm our commitment to the Black community
  • Learn about systemic racism and actionable ways to make change
  • Hold a dialogue with our executive team on fostering a more diverse and inclusive organization
  • Give our Black employees a space for celebration and restoration

This is not a day off; rather, we expect all HackerOne employees to be engaged in action throughout the day. It’s an opportunity to understand the work ahead of us and prepare for a more egalitarian future.

Employees are encouraged to cancel all non-critical meetings to attend workshops and events. We’ll offer a workshop around resilience and liberation for our Black colleagues, a roundtable for allies, and much more.

How will you spend this day of action? Let us know on twitter @hacker_0x01!
