At Novasyte, we are proud to foster a culture of inclusivity. For February, we recognize and honor Black History Month. First celebrated in 1925 to recognize the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas, the celebration was expanded to a month in 1976 as encouraged by President Gerald Ford. He urged Americans to, “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”
Throughout the month, Novasyte has celebrated by coming together as a team for a diversity potluck as well as sharing a playlist from Spotify. (*Disclaimer: some songs have explicit language; Novasyte does not endorse this playlist but we think it is another fun way to feel connected to the month.)
Before the month is over, we want to highlight a key member of our Novafamily; a successful, inspirational, female leader who is an essential member of our team - our Director of Payroll & Expense, Theresa Reed.
