Baird is proud to join our associates, clients and communities in celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Several of our associates recently reflected on the significance of this month:

This month is a special time to remember how the rich history of the AAPI community has impacted this great nation. It’s a month to be proud, positive and visible.

I believe when people openly share their cultural identity through their daily actions, we all have the power to learn, love and create new communities that value and connect all people.

May is designated as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in the United States to celebrate and recognize the many contributions of the AAPI community throughout the country’s history. Baird’s Prism Associate Resource Group, which champions multicultural diversity across the firm, is hosting a panel event to celebrate the month.

The discussion will feature the heritage of a panel of Baird associates, who will share their families’ stories, cultural lessons learned and the challenges and successes they’ve encountered on their career journeys in the financial services industry. The panelists will include associates from across our Private Wealth Management and Equity Asset Management teams.
