A short break from wedding photography here with some shots of the entertainers at a recent Bank of New York Mellon event. This was for the launch of ‘Impact’ a multicultural group within the bank that focuses on staff from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.
The evening started with a Chinese lion dance. The only lions I’ve ever seen have been in a zoo and were lying around yawning, this one was a bit more lively and did a lot of jumping around the stage and shaking it’s head at the audience. This was followed by a very elegant solo Chinese dancer and a martial arts demonstration.
The main event was a series of speakers, talking about their personal experiences, and Impact’s mission to act as a resource for the company and employees, with a specific emphasis on the recruitment, retention, professional development and advancement of multicultural employees.
The event finished with a fantastic display of Bhangra dancing. These guys had unlimited energy and seemed to spend half their time in mid air. That drum was very, very loud! One of the dancers was also an employee at BNY Mellon, so his co-workers had the opportunity to see him out of his business suit and in action.
