6th Annual Juneteenth Celebration Gala
Monday, June 19th, 2023

LCCC announces our inaugural year of recognizing individuals and teams who make exceptional impact in the areas of inclusion, equity and diversity.

The Trustees of Inclusive Equity Awards will be presented during a special Juneteenth Celebration Gala, on June 19th, symbolic of a significant date in African American history that commemorates our past, while acknowledging current-day strides to promote economic mobility, personal development, respect for all cultures, and equitable opportunities for all. LCCC and its partners want to highlight community and corporate leaders who are innovative in their approach to advancing inclusive equity in corporate, education, healthcare, nonprofit, and community institutional settings.

This will be an in-person event which will be livestreamed via YouTube.

Are you an organization that wants to join our efforts?

Join our effort to stimulate greater economic impact within underserved areas of our community by helping us recognize the work of local leaders who are driving the I.E. movement.

Join the past Trustees of Inclusive Equity Award Recipients & LCCC on Juneteenth as we honor six individuals/companies for their advancement of inclusion and equity in our community.

Why is Juneteenth important to the advancement of economic equity and justice in America?

The cultural holiday Juneteenth is invaluable to growth and maintenance of economic equity in America because it provides a necessary starting point. 2022 marks 157 years of history since General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas and read the Emancipation Proclamation. The celebration that ensued among those African Americans was one of gratitude as much as expectation. We use Juneteenth as a place marker to measure how far we have come collectively as a nation toward fulfilling the promises contained in our foundational documents.
