AXA participated in the 2015 NYC Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival, racing for the 7th year in a row. Over two days, the AXA Fire Dragons and Water Dragons competed against nearly 200 dragon boats from across North America and the Caribbean. Ten weeks of practice paid off for the teams, as they advanced to the finals in both the “Corporate Invitational” and “500 Meter Heritage Mixed” categories. The teams were led by AXA’s Pan Asian Resource Council (PARC) Employee Resource Group (ERG).
In addition to racing, the PARC and AXA Family ERGs hosted an arts and crafts tent at the festival.
As recipient of the “sponsor of the year” award, AXA is proud to support a cultural tradition that brings together employees and community members from all over the world.
