SEPTEMBER 13, 2023 6:00PM–9:30PM | CHINA INSTITUTE, NYC 40 RECTOR STREET, 2ND FLOOR | COCKTAIL ATTIRE PREFERRED
Be inspired, hear from top U.S.-China and AAPI leaders in 2023.
U.S.-China relations and the Asian American community stand at a critical juncture. As a leader in these spaces, the Serica Initiative recognizes it is more vital than ever for us to forge powerful partnerships and amplify our impact together — we are stronger together.
The Serica Annual Gala convenes trailblazers, thought leaders, and rising talents to empower and inspire each other along Serica's mission: to galvanize a global community of changemakers to advocate for greater Asian American inclusion and advance positive social impact in U.S.-China relations, through dialogue, storytelling, and our convening power.
Our 2023 Annual Gala seeks to inspire our audience, drawing on Serica's Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) partnerships with leading organizations including The Asian American Foundation (TAAF); our ongoing AAPI film collaborations with PBS/The WNET Group's Exploring Hate initiative in 2022 and 2023; as well as our U.S.-China and Next Gen partnership with China Institute.
Attending the Serica Annual Gala is an opportunity to celebrate your commitment to diversity and inclusion in the U.S.-China space. You will network with an incredibly engaged high-value audience of U.S.-China and AAPI leaders. There will be a pre-event cocktail where we will highlight Asian Booths with Street Food and Culture Booths. This will be followed by a live Gala and awards dinner with entertainment. We seek to inspire our audiences, giving them the chance to learn from and network with top AAPI and U.S.-China leaders.
