Asian American Leadership and Mental Health

A4P "Asian American Leadership: Mindsets and Pathways"

Thurs March 11th 8:00 - 9:15 PM EST

Asian American Leadership and Mental Health

As Asian Americans, juggling family and social life, service work, and professional responsibilities, at times we can feel that caring for our well-being comes last, if at all. There can be challenges to our mental health when we pursue and take on leadership roles. Intergenerational experiences and the ways we are racialized, including the effects of the model minority myth, all come together to influence our experiences of leadership. Join us for a round-table discussion of these issues and ways to live well and support one another as we take the lead.

Optional Cheese Pairings suggested by Sebastian:  TBA

Olsson’s Cheese Plate:

The cheeses selected by Sebastian are locally produced. All purchases are optional, but Olsson’s does have the cheeses in stock .

 1. Cheese pairing suggestion: Valley shepherd Verigoat. This local goat milk cheese is made in Long Valley, Northern NJ and aged in caves for 6 weeks before release. It’s an aromatic and lean cheese with a crumble texture. It offers herbal and floral notes with a saline note. Ideal to accompany the crisp and dry Semillon white wine made by SILKMAN in Hunter Valley region, New South Whale, Australia.

 2. Cheese pairing suggestion: Cherry Grove Oumami Brie. This is a raw cow milk based cheese made in Lawrenceville, NJ. It’s a creamy and highly moisture Brie with notes of lemon rim, earth and grass. Texture is soft and buttery with mushroom and earthy flavors. This a perfect pairing for the Pinot Gris made in Tasmania Island by Holm Oak.

 3. Cheese pairing suggestion: Kidchego. This is a goat milk version of the Spanish cheese Manchego that is traditionally made with milk from sheep. This cheese has a firm, compact consistency and a smooth texture. While mild in flavor, this is a cheese that's rich in a simple way. It is tangy, yet savory, soft and substantial, made locally in Lancaster Pa from Misty Creek Farms. It’s smooth texture and grassy flavors make this cheese ideal to pair with the Pinot Noir from Mc Pherson made in Victoria, South Australia.

4. Cheese pairing suggestion: Flory’s Truckle. Cow raw milk semi firm cheese made in Missouri and inspired by the English cheddar. Aged for one year before release. Notes of grass and a nutty flavor with a fruity aftertaste. Ideal pairing for the full-bodied Cabernet from Balnaves in Coonawarra. South Australia.

“Offshore Aquaculture & World Protein Demand:  Commercial Incentives to Fulfill Conservation Imperatives”

Speaker:  Neil Anthony Sims, Founder & CEO, Ocean-Era, Inc.


For registration please go here.



Demand for fish and seafood is the world’s fastest growing protein food sector.  Indeed, the authors of the 2019 UN High Level Panel on the Oceans and Climate Change urged human transition from terrestrial to more marine-sourced foods.  But with wild stock fisheries already at their peak (and possibly beyond), how do we achieve this?  Can we really build a healthier environment and have our fish and eat it, too?  Responsible open ocean aquaculture offers solutions.  With decades of experience in tackling these issues, aquaculture pioneer, Neil Sims, p’17, from his operations base in Kona, Hawaii, will present:  a history of open ocean aquaculture; current commercial incentives that are driving it; and the technical innovations Ocean-Era employs to balance marine protein demand with environmental concerns.   There will be ample time for Q & A, with priority given to viewer questions sent in advance to:
