Day of Unity


27 Sep: Best Buy’s Day of Unity is about service, solidarity and social justice

We are stronger together, so we’re dedicating a day to celebrating that simple fact.

Our second annual Day of Unity will be held Sept. 28. It’s a day for employees of all backgrounds, races, religions, identities and abilities to show that together, we are one.

This day will be one for reflection on giving back to our communities and showing solidarity with one another.

“Every employee at Best Buy should feel like they belong,” said Mark Irvin, Best Buy’s chief inclusion, diversity and talent officer.

As the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and Elijah McClain ignited social unrest across the nation this past year, Best Buy employee Maxie Rosenbloom didn’t know where to turn.

As a Black man, he felt present but not seen, heard but not understood. It was emotionally taxing. But then Maxie witnessed professional athletes boycotting their games and leveraging their national platforms to demand change.

“They created a moment where I no longer felt invisible,” he said. “And I thought to myself, ‘What would it take to create a moment of our own at Best Buy?’”
