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.
We are looking forward to a day of education and empowerment.
