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!
