#ASBPride: Manaola’s Story – The Search for Happiness

ASB October 18, 2021 | 1 MIN read Community

At American Savings Bank, we embrace and support customers and teammates from all backgrounds and sexual orientations. This diversity provides us with richer experiences and perspectives, which allow us to better understand the communities we serve.

This week, we continue our Honolulu Pride Month celebration with the third of four videos in our #ASBPride series. Manaola Yap, designer and owner of Manaola, and Zachary Pang, chief executive officer of Manaola, share their pride story in the video below.

It’s important to us to create a welcoming environment, safe workplace and inclusive culture that encourages people to talk about and celebrate each other’s unique differences.

This year, we were recognized by Hawaii Business magazine as a Best Company for LGBTQ Equality and as one of the top 100 companies nationwide on People’s 100 Companies That Care list. In 2019, ASB also ranked no. 19 in the 2019 Best Workplaces for Diversity list by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
