BHG Financial Partners with LEAP to Kick Off AAPI Month

Gaby M. Rojas
This May, for the second year, BHG Financial (BHG) is partnering with Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics (LEAP), a national nonprofit organization with a mission to achieve full participation and equality for Asian and Pacific Islanders (APIs) through leadership, empowerment, and policy.

For the second year, BHG Financial (BHG) is partnering with Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics (LEAP), a national nonprofit organization with a mission to achieve full participation and equality for Asian and Pacific Islanders (APIs) through leadership, empowerment, and policy. Through this partnership, the company will help to bring awareness and knowledge to employees during Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) month.

AAPI month celebrates the contributions and influence of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. Working with LEAP allows BHG’s employees to gain knowledge of Asian American and Pacific Islander cultures. Representation matters, especially in leadership positions, and BHG is glad to have the opportunity to educate employees and uplift those of AAPI heritage.

“Our hope with this partnership is that our Asian American and Pacific Islander employees will feel empowered with resources to help advance them in their careers, and the employees who are not in this group have the knowledge to understand their fellow employees,” says Eric Castro, co-founder. “I truly believe in creating a culture where everyone respects, understands, and appreciates one another, cultivating a more proactive and overall positive workplace.”

LEAP will give a virtual presentation to BHG employees on bridging the gap: understanding Asian and Pacific Islanders. API employees will also have the option to attend a 120-minute presentation and entry-level and executive leadership development training.  Along with providing financial support and benefits that employees can take advantage of, BHG will host LEAP participants in the company’s Las Olas office in October for the LEAP Exceed event. Exceed is a three-day program designed to develop and empower API leaders to increase the number of APIs in executive management in Fortune 1000 corporations. The support and education of the API culture will continue to expand beyond May and be ingrained in the company culture. LEAP’s core strategic approach of developing people, informing society, and empowering communities, aligns fully with everything BHG sets out to do.
