Intellis Acknowledges Friday, June 19th “Juneteenth” as a Company Holiday

At Intellis, we proudly announce that we are recognizing Friday, June 19, “Juneteenth,” as a paid holiday for our company this year to acknowledge the official emancipation of African Americans throughout the United States.

It is a time for all of us, individually and collectively, to reflect and decide what we can do to end inequality and injustice. 

At Intellis, we strongly believe in promoting an equal and diverse workforce locally and globally. We are proud of the diverse company culture we have cultivated and will continue to lead by example.


Our Foundation product serves public housing, schools, and neighborhoods of all sizes. It brings issues of those needing repair and replacement to light so that any resident or student can benefit from it anywhere. We have heard some of our colleagues in the Facilities Management community state that we are “changing lives” with our product and what we do. We firmly believe that. These thoughts keep us moving forward to create a more equal and just society directly through our work. 

Further information about the history of Juneteenth:

“Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when the news of liberation came to Texas more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation went into effect on January 1, 1863. African Americans across the state were made aware of their right to freedom on this day when Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston with federal troops to read General Order No. 3 announcing the end of the Civil War and that all enslaved were now free, as well as to maintain a presence in Texas for enforcement of emancipation among slave-owners throughout the state.”

Recognition of African American contributions to the Facilities Management industry and the importance of diversity:
