Due to recent events that have sparked a conversation on racial injustice, Juneteenth, a holiday mostly celebrated by the African American community, has exploded into popularity to the point where several major companies have declared June 19 a paid holiday.

But general counsel from Eventbrite Inc., Mastercard International Inc. and Adobe Inc. say credit is due to their culture-based employee resource groups and diversity and inclusion groups who proposed Juneteenth to be an official holiday and asked employees to educate themselves with resources from books to music as work-from-home policies are still intact.
