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.
From Chih-Tang Sah and the semiconductor revolution to Chien-Shiung Wu and the Manhattan Project, Chinese Americans have played an integral, but often overlooked part in the technological growth of the United States.
Presented by Committee of 100 President Zhengyu Huang, 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.
