Join Jenny in 2022
Three years ago, I started my leadership journey with NAAAP when I attended my first NAAAP DC event and met many amazing individuals. These individuals have become my mentors, friends, and my support system. With the support and encouragement of my peers, I am blessed with the opportunity to be NAAAP DC’s 2022 President.
Next year as President, I will connect even more Asian Americans in our community to the NAAAP network of Asian Pacific Islander leaders.
It will be a big year for our chapter, as we will host the NAAAP Leadership Convention. This is an exciting time, and I want you to be a part of it.
The convention is a massive undertaking and we can use helping hands. If you are in the D.C. area and looking for a support system, a way to make a difference in the community, or an opportunity to develop your leadership skills, apply to be on NAAAP DC’s 2022 Leadership Team today! Being on this team has been one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I hope to get the opportunity to learn from you and support you on your leadership journey.

Social Impact Awards
The Social Impact Awards are an annual recognition program, which honors outstanding commitment to corporate social responsibility and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Formerly, PRNEWS hosted the CSR awards, which reigned for 20 years and this marquee award for Social Good professionals, and in 2020 hosted the inaugural Diversity Awards, which honored historically underrepresented professionals in the wake of rising social protests. Now in 2021, the Social Impact Awards take on the essence of both of these audience favorite programs and look to highlight outstanding CSR & DEI work being done by agencies, corporations, nonprofits, and more both internationally and in the U.S.
Through categories like Sustainability Leader of the Year, CSR Professional of the Year, and Women’s Empowerment Champion, these awards look to celebrate the individuals leading the way in social responsibility and inclusion. The Pioneer Awards showcase the industry’s top communications professionals from historically underrepresented communities and the work they do to advance their communities. Categories like Employee Development Initiative and Mentoring Program, honor the organization’s internal missions and the strides they make to encourage their employees and/or the future members of the organization. Finally, there are over 30 campaign and communications categories, which will celebrate everything from health communications to pro bono work and campaigns by minority-owned businesses to campaigns combatting racial injustice.
Needless to say, there is a campaign for everyone. You’ve done the work to be a more socially responsible and inclusive organization, now is the time to show it off. Enter this impactful work into the 2022 Social Impact Awards.
The entry deadline is October 8. Visit the Call for Entries page for more info.
Mid-Autumn and Marvel
A big reason to celebrate our Asian American community this week – congrats to the cast and crew of Marvel’s Shang-Chi for shattering the Labor Day weekend ticket sales record with $90 million in sales. If you haven’t had a chance to see it, we encourage you to do so!
Later this month, we celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, which is celebrated by many East and Southeast Asian people. During this celebration, families and friends give thanks for the harvest and offer each other wishes for happiness and long life and remembering loved ones who live far away.
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
