EY Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Executive Forum 2021

 

In these unprecedented and challenging times, it is important to remember that we are stronger together. This inspiring event brought together corporate executives, community activists and special guests to spotlight Pan Asian and Pacific Islander cultures, traditions and contributions that are impacting and shaping our communities and society at large.

The EY Pan Asian Professional Network was proud to host this inaugural event in collaboration with our clients, corporate networks, and community organizations. We will continue to use our influence to provide access and advance a culture of inclusion and celebration of differences that allows people to feel valued, respected and supported.
