Asians and Pacific Islanders have always been a part of America's journey even when denied citizenship or facing discrimination. Their lives and stories have shaped the nation.
Join us to hear the experiences and insights from Weike Wang, a Chinese American and author of the novel “Chemistry”, which won the 2018 PEN/Hemingway Award, and the recent work, “Joan is Okay.” As well as Dianne Xiao, an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington, who has received a CAREER Award, the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations. This special broadcast celebrates Asian American Pacific Island Heritage Month that recognizes the contributions and influence of Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans on the history, culture, and achievements of the United States.
This ACS Webinar is moderated by Paula Christopher of the American Chemical Society and co-produced with the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Respect.
