Your Brain at Work LIVE | Juneteenth: Towards a New Perspective

Your Brain at Work LIVE - S5:E04 Juneteenth Towards a New Perspective


One year ago this month, NeuroLeadership Institute, many organizations, and the vast majority of state governments declared #Juneteenth, the day that commemorates the emancipation of slavery in the United States, a paid holiday. On June 16, 2021 (the day of this posting), President Biden is expected to sign a bill from Congress into law declaring it a federal holiday. In this special edition of #YourBrainAtWork LIVE, an esteemed panel will discuss Juneteenth from a historical perspective, how it resonates and moves communities today, and where the conversation is going in the future. What meaningful ways can companies, leaders, and society-at-large deploy efforts and resources to create a more just, diverse, and equitable future?

Dr. Lila Ammons (Associate Professor, Howard University)
Khalil Smith (Vice President, Inclusion, Diversity, and Engagement, Akamai) Janet Stovall (Senior Client Strategist, NeuroLeadership Institute)
John Edwards (Senior Client Strategist, NeuroLeadership Institute)
