Observance of Juneteenth | Jama Software

Last week, our CEO Marc Osofsky announced that Jama Software will be adding Juneteenth to the official paid holiday calendar. We acknowledge that as a company, we have more to learn, more to give, more to change, and more to do to promote racial equality.

Over the next several months, we are planning, implementing, and executing short-term initiatives and building out a long-term plan as part of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program to hold ourselves accountable for action.

Please join us in observing Juneteenth and promoting racial equality. We’ve compiled a list of virtual events and resources to educate and reflect on the history of Juneteenth.
