United Front: 14 Facilities Raise the Pan-African Flag
Earlier this month, we continued our tradition of raising the Pan-African (RBG) flag at TD SYNNEX facilities, this time expanding to 14 locations across the US and Canada. The Pan-African flag is a symbol of African nation sovereignty and the liberation of Black people around the world. Watch the video below to see all locations that are flying the flag: https://share.vidyard.com/watch/b2Y4G6pvvgf7zjtx76UBnM?
Op-ed: A Time to Learn, Lament and Honor
Earlier this month, Brianna Berry, supervisor of the University Engagement Talent Acquisition Team and co-chair of the Recruitment Committee for Beacon at TD SYNNEX, shared her perspective on Black History Month with the Greenville Journal. From the op-ed:
“This month is not only a time for education and acknowledgment, but one of reflection and inquisition — a time to learn, lament, and honor those who came before us.”
In her article, Brianna talks about her experience with Beacon, how our core values play a role as a competitive differentiator and the importance of recognizing MLK Jr. Day as a company-wide holiday. Brianna was also actively involved in our MLK Week of Service, working with GirlUp GVL, a nonprofit that focuses on enriching young women of color with positive, formative experiences that replace obstacles with opportunities. Partnering with them provides an opportunity for TD SYNNEX co-workers in Greenville to serve our community and learn more about local advocacy efforts.
“We cannot undo the shortcomings of our past, but we can invest in partnerships that will impact our future… During Black History Month, I recall the words of Dr. King that have marked my life. ‘If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.’ We can all play a part in that. Our differences and our actions make all the difference.”
