This month we honor Asian American and Pacific Islanders’ (AAPI) contributions to history, culture, and our communities. While it’s a renewed opportunity to acclaim and learn from the people of the 68 countries that make up the AAPI community, we also hope this incredible breadth of cultures coming together in common celebration can be a lesson of inclusivity we can carry with us throughout the year.
The Federal Asian Pacific American Council’s 2023 theme for AAPI Heritage Month is “Advancing Leaders Through Opportunity.” Our profession cannot achieve its full potential without diverse perspectives, experiences, and voices leading the way.
Our story within
Cetera’s AAPI Employee Resource Group (ERG) is a critical partner in educating, empowering, and elevating our teams and communities, shaping our diversity efforts, and adding more voices and allies to our inclusive culture.
To advance AAPI leadership, Cetera’s AAPI ERG hosted a career panel that featured experiences and advice from AAPI team members at all levels. Such opportunities for our Cetera team members to share, collaborate, and elevate varied ideas and perspectives across the organization help ensure a wider horizon and stronger future for everyone.
