Resources for Inclusive Innovation
Named in honor of Juneteenth, 619 is an internal employee resource group (ERG) founded by a committee of Black 1871 team members with the goal of equity, inclusivity, and allyship across all levels of the 1871 team, our members, partners, and the larger tech world.
619 will kick off with a virtual launch party on 2.23.2021 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM.
Constructing a More Equitable Community
At 1871, we’re proud to play an important role in fostering a stronger and more inclusive tech environment, but we also know that this commitment begins with us. 619 is our internal ERG led by the Black community that strives to educate and empower our employees, build a coalition of allies devoted to inclusive innovation, and promote equity across all levels of 1871 through programming and honest discussion.
