INTERVIEWS

MTA Keynote Speaker

On Thursday, May 14, 2009, from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m., at 2 Broadway, 20th Floor, the MTA Bridges and Tunnels Diversity Committee will host what we expect to be an unforgettable event.  Asian-American Pacific Heritage Month will be celebrated with a tribute to our newest Asians, "The Cambodian-Americans."

Out of a total workforce of 1,789, we have 133 (7.44%) Asian-American employees.  Found primarily in our Engineering, Finance and Technology departments, they serve with dutiful devotion and keen intelligence.  

Our keynote speaker will be filmmaker Vibol S. Sungkriem.  He is a product of the mean streets of the Bronx where the bulk of the city's Cambodian-Americans were resettled as refugees fleeing the killing fields of the Khmer Rouge in the 1970's.    

Jean-Michel Tijerina, founder and CEO of The Cambodia Project, an organization born in Columbia University, will speak about their work in rebuilding schools in Cambodia.

Somaly Hay, choreographer and dancer trained in the Cambodian royal palace as a child, will bring members of The Cambodian Children Dancers.  Renowned for their graceful hand gestures and stunning costumes, the Cambodia Royal Ballet would traditionally accompany ceremonies in the king's court.  This cherished art form narrowly escaped annihilation under the Khmer Rouge.  Ms. Hay is keeping that tradition alive in the United States.   

As I said, an unforgettable event.  Don't miss it!
