Mental Health is Health

When most people think about health, they naturally think about the physical body. Insurance plans are built around it, workplaces tell you to stay home when you have a cold, and people are able to quickly spot when they or others are not feeling their best physically.

The Yes& team reflects on AAPI Heritage Month

May is Asian American/Pacific Islander Heritage Month and Yes& joins in celebrating the people and cultures of the world’s largest continent, which today hosts 48 nations. Since the first wave of Asian immigrants arrived nearly 200 years ago, the United States has benefitted from the rich heritage of people from China to Korea to Thailand to India to Russia, and dozens of points in between. In recognition of AAPI Month, we reached out to some of our Yes& team members to hear what the designation means to them.

Women's History Month Doesn't Have To Be About History

Women’s History Month is the time of year when we look back on the whole of history and tell the stories of women who shattered the glass ceiling. Names like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks, Clara Barton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Princess Diana come to mind. These were women in the public eye. They are very much giants in history. However, it is important to note that glass is easier to shatter when it is already cracked.

Organizational Culture: A Year in Review

To say that the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted life and wreaked havoc across the world is an understatement. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, and more than 500,000 have lost their lives, to this deadly virus; while virtual offices and classrooms, masks, and social distancing are the new normal.
