In support and celebration of the Juneteenth holiday, Bold Insight highlights the DuSable Museum of African American History. Located in Chicago, the DuSable Museum is the first non-profit museum dedicated to the collection, documentation, preservation, study, and the dissemination of the history and culture of Africans and African Americans. Through exhibits, educational programs, the archives, and special activities, the Museum continuously explores the African-American experience and accomplishments of the past and present to further advance the education of the future.
Juneteenth offers an opportunity to reflect on injustice in American history and to recognize the struggles that the Black community has overcome and is still experiencing today.
“Equality and inclusion are crucial to Bold Insight’s vision of employee experience, as well as evolving our user experience research practices.” said Gavin Lew, Managing Partner at Bold Insight. “Celebrating Juneteenth gives us the opportunity to reflect on our country’s past mistakes and how we should continue to challenge racial injustice as both a team at Bold Insight and as members of our community.”
