What consulting firms have Juneteenth off? I’ll go first: not Booz Allen Hamilton

For everyone looking for ways to observe consider making a donation to a nonprofit or volunteering your time for a nonprofit that serves black communities. Also, go to Google and search for “Devil’s Punchbowl Mississippi” to get a better idea of why Juneteenth is significant and necessary.

Please read this editorial and understand what a systematic politically motivated social experiment / engineering we have been put through ( all of us ). https://washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/marchaprilmay-2017/the-decline-of-black-business/ some history...The House passed the bill on February 10, 1964 after 70 days of public hearings and testimony from more than 275 witnesses, but a 57-day filibuster prevented the Senate from voting. Finally, on June 10, 1964, the Senate voted to end the filibuster and passed the bill a week later. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is the most sweeping civil rights legislation Congress has ever passed and paved the way for the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the Fair Housing Act of 1968 and the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990, among other key laws.

I think it would really present the right direction for our firm and a reflection of our core values if we made the initiative to send the right message by letting our staff have the opportunity to celebrate Juneteenth with their respective families and communities, and help deliver a culture of decisiveness on short notice 😇

Not Accenture, but it’s okay since we’ll get an email talking about how it means so much to leadership and how we’re truly human and how we value I&D the most. That one email is the equivalent of us getting the day off, maybe even better.

To Accenture 1: Thanks for the laugh! 😀 Maybe Jimmy E. will send another postcard with seeds but instead of thanking People Leads, it will say how Juneteenth means so much to Accenture Leadership? 🤷🏽‍♂️ I planted those seeds and watered every day. No sign of life 🌱 yet! 😀

OP - are you suggesting you’re disappointed with our company not changing its vacation day policy within 1 day of the day becoming an ‘official’ Federal holiday?

In the same vein, LT should also be tracking movement on the bill that will make Voting day a federal holiday. Given the current administration, I think this is becoming a strong possibility, now would be the time for them to prepare, not in November

It's just became a holiday guys like an hour ago. I agree it's an important day that should be marked but you cant expect giant orgs to stop the ship on a dime. I guarantee that most orgs with give off next year.
