To advance cross-cultural collaboration by celebrating Asian and Indigenous legacy in the United States and globally, the Asian Hall of Fame recently announced its 2023 Inductees. Festivities benefit its Fellowship Academy, a workforce development program for diversity youth, ASD (autism spectrum disorder) fellows, and human trafficking survivors.
“Inductees and Artist Ambassadors inspire courage, character, and service for the betterment of our country and humanity. We are honored to also celebrate our founding family’s 160th Anniversary in America, and the Centennial of our season partner Biltmore Los Angeles,” states Grammy Member Maki Hsieh, President & CEO of Asian Hall of Fame, and CEO of its founder Robert Chinn Foundation.
