Juneteenth Celebrations Foster Allyship, Fellowship and Fun
As part of its year-long programming, our Black Excellence Unlimited (BeU) Business Resource Group (BRG) hosted a series of events in recognition of Juneteenth, the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States.
BeU hosted the following events in the days surrounding the June 19 holiday:
- Virtual Juneteenth celebration that brought together CDW colleagues for shared learning, fellowship and fun
- In-person happy hour at our Chicago office for networking, delicious Southern food and live music
- Second Annual 5K Race for Equality that united coworkers in raising funds for Beyond Sports Foundation, a nonprofit committed to assisting student-athletes from under-resourced communities in the Chicagoland area by teaching and reinforcing the skills necessary to enter and excel in college as well as succeed in life beyond sports
BeU’s membership is committed to amplifying and advancing its mission to enable CDW's Black coworkers to achieve excellence and have a positive impact on our customers and communities.
