New York City Mayor Eric Adams honours a prominent India-born entrepreneur and author for her tremendous efforts to facilitate cross-cultural exchange and unify the city’s vibrant South Asian community.
Anu Sehgal, founder and president of The Culture Tree, was honoured with a citation by Adams at the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Reception 2023 here on Tuesday.
The special commemoration awarded Sehgal, as the only South Asian of the six honourees, in the presence of the important members of the AAPI communities and diaspora.
Sehgal was commended for her “efforts to foster cross-cultural exchange while uniting the vibrant South Asian community. Together, we look forward to the many ways she and all AAPI New Yorkers will continue to make a positive difference as we take bold steps to ‘Get Stuff Done’ and forge a brighter, safer and prosperous future for our global city.”
Adams recognised the accomplishments of Sehgal, “a proud Indian American who has strengthened New York for nearly two decades.”
Sehgal said she is honoured to be recognised by Adams and his office for the work she has been doing for the cultural enrichment and development of New York’s South Asian community.
