BAM Observes Asian American and Native Hawaiian / Pacific Islander Heritage Month

MAY 16, 2022 – May is Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and Build America Mutual, and our associates are taking the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander colleagues, counterparties, and members. At BAM, we celebrate, acknowledge, and embrace the unique contributions made by people of all cultures and encourage all employees to take time this month to reflect on the history and achievements of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders who have championed and helped finance essential public infrastructure across the nation.

Unfortunately, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have continued to face hate incidents and violence in their communities over the past two years. BAM stands by our pledge to maintain a safe environment and support our employees as communities rally and take action to combat hate and seek support to address these issues.   We strive to create a workplace where every employee feels safe, valued, and empowered to be their authentic self and embrace their heritage culture.

We continue to work to increase the cultural competency of our team and share new resources to support our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives.
