The Sol Systems’ team celebrating Soliversary during a rooftop happy hour.

Sol Systems’ anniversary, Soliversary, is quite the annual event at our office. With a full week dedicated to it, Soliversary is a time where everyone gathers to reflect on the past and set goals for the future while also celebrating our roots. This year marked Sol Systems’ 11th anniversary. The week began with a packed agenda of brown-bag presentations including a mindfulness workshop, a speaker from the UN Foundation, and a recycling lesson through the Alice Ferguson Foundation. We also hosted a Women’s Happy Hour, focusing on how to incorporate happiness throughout life consciously. These events led up to our annual field day, which included an exciting schedule of kayaking, exploring nature, and delicious food. Months of planning were about to go into full execution.

However, the day took a surprising turn when rain and hail emerged on the local forecast. The rainy-day blues quickly shifted into a bright, fun-filled day. We began the morning with a bagel breakfast, followed by spontaneous adventures. Employees split into eight teams and were assigned to a museum. Because our home base is in Washington, D.C., the National Mall is, quite literally, in our backyard, making it easy and accessible to everyone. Teams adventured to the Natural History Museum, the American History Museum, and the African American History Museum among others. We bonded with one another and shared stories and memories of past events Soliversaries that emphasize the company culture that drives our integrity.

We later came back to the office for a delicious lunch accompanied by a touching speech from leaders in the company addressing our story and how far we have come. We celebrated milestones and future endeavors, devoured some cake, and enjoyed one another’s presence. The remainder of the day continued with soccer games in Georgetown, frisbee on the national mall, and restaurant outings. The team then ventured onto a beautiful rooftop with a gorgeous view of the city, accompanied by a sunset that painted the summer sky. What started as an imperfect scenario came together as a perfect celebration of our company and culture. Events like these embody the importance of celebrating success, especially with a hardworking, dedicated team. Happy 11th Anniversary to Sol Systems!
