Celebrating AANHPI Heritage Month

Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month is an annual celebration that recognizes the historical and cultural contributions of people of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander descent to the United States. The month of May was chosen* for AANHPI Heritage Month because it commemorates the immigration of the first Japanese people to the United States on May 7, 1843. May is also a significant month because it recognizes Golden Spike Day*, May 10, 1869, which marks the completion of the transcontinental railroad* that was built with significant contributions from Chinese workers.

In Atlanta, our Asian and Pacific Islander business resource group (BRG) celebrated by hosting an outdoor event that welcomed more than 150 employees to partake in spirited cricket and badminton tournaments, while offering an array of Asian street foods and traditional music.

The true success of the event was in its ability to unite employees while capturing the importance of culture, togetherness, and appreciation of AANHPI histories and experiences. The celebration brought our community together in a spirit of unity, respect, and joy, creating lasting memories and strengthening our collective commitment to diversity and inclusion.
