Gain Perspective from Dr. Hedy Lemar Walls

The opportunities to explore and learn more about the incredible diverse cultures that make up the beautiful tapestry of our communities is integral to our equity journeys.

In May we celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month that recognizes the culture and contributions of our neighbors of Asian and Pacific Islander descent including East, Southeast and South Asia and the Pacific Islands of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia.

As of 2019, there are about 22.9 million people of Asian or Pacific Islander descent in the United States and according to Pew Research Center, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders make up seven percent of the total U.S. population. Today Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are the fastest growing racial group in the U.S.

Take some time to discover and commemorate the unique journey of all Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and how vital they are to what makes our community and country so great.

Whether it is the Equity Leadership Institute, Transformational Workplace Culture series, custom training, free online classes or more, the YMCA Equity Innovation Center is here for you to intentionally engage in thought-provoking experiences and resources that will expand your knowledge and skills. We hope you will join us as you continue your equity journey.
