Young businesspeople in transactional banking

U.S. Bank is celebrating Asian cultures during Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a variety of activities.

"We recognize that this nation is a richer tapestry of cultures and economic vitality because of the diverse talents Filipinos, Chinese, Indians and all Asian nations bring to the U.S.," said Nancy Wong, Asian segment leader for U.S. Bank. "We celebrate that diversity during this important month."

U.S. Bank and its employee-led Asian Heritage Business Resource Group are hosting multiple events in May to commemorate the month is several cities.

In San Francisco, employees attended the APA Heritage Awards Ceremony on May 1 at the Herbst Theater and will be volunteering at the Student Information, Resource and Opportunities Fair on May 13 at the Telegraph Hill Neighborhood Center.

In the Twin Cities, the bank’s Asian Heritage BRG will celebrate on May 13 at the Hmong American Village in St. Paul, with traditional dances, art and prizes.

Employees across Southern California will meet for dinner at Asian-food restaurants throughout the month to celebrate the richness of the cultures’ cuisines.

"Just as the U.S. is a giant umbrella sheltering people from all nations, we, as a bank, are a business community that welcomes people of all nationalities and backgrounds working to achieve their version of the American dream," Wong said.
