Event Information

Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with Seramount, Part of EAB! Join us for a program that will be equal parts inspiration and practical tips to empower individuals, ERGs, and communities to do their best work.

In his opening keynote, Bernie Wong will share his story in navigating chronic depression as a gay man and son of immigrants from Hong Kong and Macau, how these experiences have led to his consulting and advocacy work with organizations today, and how they have shaped his thinking around supporting the intersection of mental health, DEI, and work.

Coupled with his story, Bernie will share research from Mind Share Partners’ 2021 Mental Health at Work Report in partnership with Qualtrics and ServiceNow, along with insights and foundational practices for supporting the mental health of Asian and Pacific Islanders—across their intersectional identities—at work. These insights are grounded in Mind Share Partners’ broader consulting, training, and advising work on workplace mental health, and will offer starting strategies for individuals across levels to create meaningful change.

This program will shed light on the burgeoning issues around supporting mental health and wellness at the workplace. Our speakers will guide you through their best practices for balancing privacy and awareness on these issues and how companies can uplift and support their employees’ voices. After the presentations from our speakers, participants will have the chance to engage with them in a live Q&A session.
