As part of Convergint’s Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) initiatives, various affinity groups are being created to encourage professional development opportunities, enhance leadership skills, foster innovation and creativity, promote cultural understanding, and recruit and retain talent. With the goal of expanding on this initiative, Convergint’s I&D council recently announced the launch of the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Affinity Group. AAPI Connect’s objectives are to help create a more inclusive work environment, provide a collective voice around shared issues or concerns, promote a respectful workplace, and advance internal and external diversity initiatives.

In this video, Convergint’s Executive Director of SLED Vince Piau talks about the upcoming opportunities with AAPI Connect.
