Named after Dr. Ella F. Washington's first solo publication by Harvard Business Review Press, "The Necessary Journey: Making Real Progress on Equity" ; this signature charity event will highlight the history of Juneteenth and its impact on Black Americans. The celebratory luncheon will feature remarks from our dynamic keynote speaker, Michelle Ghee; CEO of the iconic black media brands: EBONY and Jet, and the latest data on African Americans in the US provided by the Gallup Center on Black Voices. We will also discuss the challenges, triumphs, and opportunities in an ever-changing DEI landscape. There will also be live music from local group: Future Band DC.

Support By Donating

This event will aid in raising the necessary funds to pour back into the community while cultivating strong relationships in the DEI industry. Last year, Ellavate donated $5,000 raised from the virtual Juneteenth celebration to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. This year, Ellavate plans to donate to G.O.O.D Projects, a local charity in Washington, D.C. and to the "Elevating Excellence in DEI Endowed Scholarship" at Spelman College.

How Your Organization Can Recognize Juneteenth

As your organization looks ahead to celebrating and learning about Juneteenth, it can be difficult to know what to do. Last year, Dr. Washington co-authored an article on Juneteenth sharing the history of the holiday as well as ways that organizations can honor and celebrate Juneteenth as not just a day off, but a day on as well. Through meaningful efforts, leaders have the opportunity to honor intersectionality, enhance the meaning, expand the message and take a personal approach to honor Juneteenth for their organizations and teams.
