As we enter month five of working from home, we at Nebo find ourselves asking, will this ever end HOW ARE THE OFFICE DOGS DOING??? Have we mentioned how much we love dogs at Nebo? They bring light, love and the occasional accident to our workdays, and over the last few months we have missed them dearly. But there is one silver lining to this apocalyptic WFH marathon. Now that home is the new office, we have tons of adorable new coworkers. We’ve widened our creature collection to include office dogs, office cats and even office babies. This Independence Day, we decided to check in on our cutest coworkers to see how they’re celebrating at home. Happy 4th of Jul-awww!
Five years ago I was sitting at my desk at Nebo when the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favor of marriage equality in the landmark case Obergefell v. Hodges. I say sitting at my desk, not working, because I had been glued to the SCOTUS live blog that whole morning, impatiently waiting for the ruling. When it was announced, I was flooded with relief and excitement. I feverishly texted my then-girlfriend plans to meet and get a celebratory lunch. We got lobster rolls at The Optimist, a place around the corner from the old Nebo office. We toasted to love winning.
Juneteenth marks the end of slavery for African Americans on June 19, 1865. This holiday is a time for both celebration and reflection, an opportunity to look back at our past as a country, to assess where we are in the present and to imagine a new future. To commemorate the end of slavery during this historic time, we put together a brief history of Juneteenth, as well as a wealth of resources about systemic racism and how it continues to operate in America today.
