Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Network Leaders

The PIE Network stands united with Asian American and Pacific Islander communities: #StopAsianHate.  Members of the PIE Network believe that education can—and should—be transformative, and that change is needed now in the ongoing fight for racial justice and educational excellence. This #AsianPacificHeritageMonth we celebrate some of many Asian American and Pacific Islander leaders across the Network. Here they share how their heritage impacts their approach to leadership and how they serve their communities.
