This upcoming Sunday is Juneteenth – the day we commemorate the ending of chattel slavery in the United States. This is the second year Juneteenth is being recognized as a federal holiday. Interestingly, a recent poll revealed that most Americans still know little or nothing about Juneteenth. At Clarity we will be observing the holiday on Monday to provide time for our Team to honor Juneteenth’s history, further educate ourselves about it and celebrate. Education is a core pillar of action in the Clarity Commitment to end discrimination, in all forms, in the hiring process.

Below are some of the resources we are watching and reading, many of which have been provided by one of our DEI education partners, Crescendo ー check out their excellent Slack app integration to keep DEI education top of mind for your Team, too. We encourage you to commit some time to the resources below and any others you find in your own research.
