Virtual Juneteenth celebration anyone? This is one year especially that I don't want Juneteenth to just go by without me actually celebrating or acknowledging it. Shamefully I have not done so as much in the past. Anyone up for a virtual celebration and/or know of any? I know Deloitte is not giving us the day off… I am thinking of taking it as PTO anyway.

Im free to celebrate. I took the day off.

Took the day off as well

Our firm is shortening the day by 4 hours. BUT I actually took the day off weeks ago and realized it was Juneteenth so I’m happy to be off. It’s going to be my first time acknowledging and celebrating too. If I am comfortable with it, I might go to Jersey City where there’s a celebration at liberty state park I believe.

My firm gave us the day off (not at EY anymore)

EY Parental leave question: how many weeks were you actually out? When I took my leave 3 years ago, I counted total of 21 weeks of leave. That’s including one firm winter holiday week.

Can someone who took leave recently tell me the actual number of weeks?
