Chinese American contributions


Join us for the presentation, "From Foundations to Frontiers," a landmark study of the enduring contributions of Chinese Americans to American society from the 1800s to today. The evidence-driven study details these contributions across the following seven industries: Arts & Culture, Civil Rights, Public Service and Politics, Business Leadership & Entrepreneurship, Infrastructure, Military & National Security, Public Health, and Science & Technology.
This virtual presentation will provoke curiosity and offer a new perspective on Chinese American contributions while identifying, quantifying, and showcasing the contributions of the Chinese American community through data and storytelling.
