Celebrating Black History Month

This February, we celebrate Black History Month, a time for recognizing and honoring the culture and accomplishments of Black and African American people. On behalf of the SOUL (Shades of Unified Leadership) employee resource group, we invite Bozzuto employees to come together for a virtual company-wide interactive celebration on Thursday, February 25 from 12 – 1 p.m. EST via Zoom.

 

Event Details

In keeping with this year’s Black History Month global theme, The Black Family, we will reflect on the historical tradition of the Black Family Reunion. Enjoy commentary and storytelling from some of our colleagues and a special guest speaker as they share their own family traditions. We also invite you to join us for a fun trivia game and an exciting surprise at the end.

RSVP here to receive the event link.
