Chatting With VCU’s EMBA Class

Ken Ampy, Sam Young and Bob Kelly chat virtually.

Astyra founders Ken Ampy and Sam Young spoke to the students in the Virginia Commonwealth University Executive MBA class. Professor Bob Kelly asked the two if they would speak on the longevity of their 23 year partnership, strategies employed over the years, and company culture. The hour long session was received very well and the duo will be considered for future sessions.

Managing Wellness Through Pandemic Fatigue

Shanti Das of Silence the Shame, Inc.
We recognize the mental strain that many of us find ourselves experiencing. So, last month, Astyra Corporation hosted a mental health webinar on managing wellness through the pandemic fatigue for all of our associates. We had a great turnout with over 100 attendees interested in focusing on bettering their mental health and overall wellness!
We brought in Silence the Shame, Inc. to conduct the webinar. Our speakers Shanti Das (founder) and April Stallworth commented on emotional intelligence levels, burnout and many other workplace realities.

Giving This Thanksgiving

Our Corporate Communications Specialist, Tianna, and her fellow Henrico Too Smart 2 Start board members donated their time to giving families a Thanksgiving dinner.

They woke up early Saturday morning to drive around Henrico County and deliver frozen turkeys and pre-packed meals. The Henrico Police Athletic League organized the voluntary event, collected the food and determined which families were in need.
