In this episode, Matt Ogawa, Vice President of HR Business Partners at Meta, Inc. discusses the importance of promoting mental health in the workplace, taking sabbaticals for self-care, and providing support for employees who have been laid off.  He also shares valuable tips for standing out in a crowded job market.  Matt is not only an accomplished HR executive, but is also deeply involved in the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, organizing a mental health forum with the Nam brothers and an annual AAPI celebrity basketball game.  As a bonus, we discuss our mutual love of BTS and how he threw a memorable BTS-themed birthday party for a friend (life-size cut-outs and all)!
