Come test your knowledge of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities. This interactive workshop will provide a fast-paced introduction to the past 200 years, current demographics and trends, and future projections.

DEI and racial equity frameworks often fail to meaningfully include AANHPI communities. Yet AANHPI populations are rapidly growing and by the year 2040 are projected to account for one in ten people in the U.S. Often misperceived as model minority groups, AANHPIs actually span the spectrum of health, wealth and educational levels that can impact a corporation’s marketing, DEI and corporate social responsibility strategies.

Join representatives from the Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum, the oldest and largest national advocacy organization focused on improving AANHPI health, who will lead participants through a set of discussions and activities that will help increase awareness and knowledge of this extremely diverse group.

Learning Outcomes
  • Deepen your understanding of key events in AANHPI history in the U.S.
  • Explore predominant narratives about AANHPI communities that can impact your marketing and DEI efforts
  • Increase your knowledge of key demographic and health data for AANHPI communities and their potential implications
