Employees are honored with viewing of historic American document

By The Hub team, February 22, 2018
As part of our sponsorship of the Emancipation Proclamation display at the National Archives Museum in Washington, D.C., we hosted a private viewing of the historic document for a small number of our employees on February 17.
"This was a rare opportunity to see the actual document that changed the course of America and the lives of Americans of African descent in so many ways," said Chief Diversity Officer Greg Jones, who attended the preview. "United's own aspirations of inclusion, breaking down barriers and serving all communities are reflected in the importance and power of this document."

As the employees toured the exhibit, the great significance of the Emancipation Proclamation and the freedom it helped African Americans achieve was not lost on them.

"Seeing the Emancipation Proclamation allowed me to reflect on how it influenced the course of our history." said Washington D.C. based Flight Attendant Rosalina Africano. "I hope that such experiences will continue to inspire us all to actively seek opportunities for equality, truly striving to be united."
