Juneteenth Celebration

This Friday, June 19, we celebrate Juneteenth, an annual holiday that commemorates the end of slavery in the U.S. On behalf of the SOUL (Shades of Unified Leadership) employee resource group, we invite Bozzuto employees to come together for a virtual company-wide conversational lunch and Juneteenth celebration on Friday, June 19 from 12 – 1 p.m. EDT.

How to Join
Bozzuto Management Company President Stephanie Williams will moderate a discussion focused on African American history with Leslie M. Harris, Ph.D., an esteemed author and professor at Northwestern University whose expertise has been featured on MSNBC and numerous publications.

Click here on Friday at 12 p.m. EDT to join the celebration via Zoom.
