At Emerson, here is our purpose.

We drive innovation that makes the world healthier, safer, smarter and more sustainable.

Internally, many employee resource groups (ERGs) lead the culture around Emerson’s values in integrity, safety & quality, supporting our people, customer focus, continuous improvement, collaboration, innovation, and building the next generation of leaders.

One Emerson ERG I’ll highlight is the Asian & Pacific Islander group. Next Tuesday, May 24th, they will be hosting a webinar, The View from the Top | Inspirational Life Experience with Norbu Tenzing, at 11 am CDT, for which you can register.

Here is the webinar description.

As part of Asian Heritage Month in May, we look for opportunities to shine a light on its history but also on the many contributions today of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders with like missions that are committed to helping build and maintain relationships and connections to basic resources related to health, as well as education, professional services, and more.

On May 24th, we have a unique opportunity to interview Norbu Tenzing, Vice President of American Himalayan Foundation. He is the son of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, who, along with Sir Edmund Hillary, was the first to climb Mt. Everest in 1953.

Hear about the journey to bridge the needs of Himalaya communities with training and sustainable programs that bring healthcare, education, and environmental preservation in mindful ways that revive or help maintain their diverse cultures. Each year these programs touch the lives of 300,000 Sherpas, Nepalis and Tibetans.

The American Himalayan Foundation supports vital education, health care, and cultural and environmental preservation throughout the Himalayas.

Register to join Norbu and Emerson moderators Sue Ooi and Denka Wangdi as they discuss his father’s Mt. Everest feat, his inspirational work with the foundation, and the risks and challenges faced by the Sherpas and mountaineering workers in the Himalayas.
