With civic outreach as an integral part of the new organization’s mission, the Black Employee Network invited community guests to this event, including Shauntice Rutley from the Austin Area Urban League and Dr. Tajah Gross, the chief equitable and innovation officer from Manor Independent School District. Both the Austin Area Urban League and Manor ISD are Samsung Austin Semiconductor community partners. “We are an ally in order to make sure our communities’ needs are met, “said Rutley. “Samsung, thank you for all that you do for our community.”
Last summer, Chris Morrison, a supervisor in our Implant Unit, and his son, participated in Austin’s Juneteenth parade for the first time as part of Samsung Austin Semiconductor’s float.
