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 the contribution 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.
