Michael Terrell, Per Scholas Senior Managing Director, and Edwin Harris II, Per Scholas Manager, Business Solutions, Connect with NAVEX for Juneteenth

On Juneteenth, Michael Terrell, Per Scholas Senior Managing Director, and Edwin Harris II, Per Scholas Manager, Business Solutions, connected with NAVEX to discuss Per Scholas’ impact, history, mission, and commitment to diversity in tech. Thy discussed Per Scholas’ 30-year history, our goal to create pathways for individuals to enter the technology industry and secure high-wage, high-growth careers, and our commitment to addressing the diversity gap in the tech industry by ensuring that the workforce reflects the diverse communities it serves. 

“Juneteenth for me is a celebration,” Edwin Harris II said. “It’s particularly impactful within the African American culture, but a national celebration of freedom that comes with that. So, in context to Per Scholas, given the fact that we work with a lot of minority organizers, populations, I think it’s just another holiday to remember some of the struggles, but also take a chance to celebrate the overcoming of said struggles within our society and economy, ensuring history and traditions are never lost.”
