It’s Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and Goldhouse is kicking it off with their A100 list, the definitive honor that recognizes the 100 APIs who have most significantly impacted American culture and society in the last year. This year 11 Filipinos made it on this prestigious list alongside some amazing Asian and Pacific Islander trailblazers who are at the forefront of this “New Gold Age.”
The honorees are selected across industry categories and are voted on through a rigorous and comprehensive process with dozens of the nation’s top API nonprofit organizations, a panel of multicultural icons (including actress-singer Lea Salonga, General Atlantic Vice Chairman Ajay Banga, Panda Express Co-CEOs Andrew and Peggy Cherng, actor and activist Daniel Dae Kim, GLAAD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis, and Olympian Apolo Anton Ohno, among others), and hundreds of Gold House members who are each at the apex of their respective industries.
For the first time, Goldhouse will be celebrating the honorees in person at the inaugural Gold Gala on May 21st, 2022 in collaboration with Meta and Procter & Gamble. Stay tuned for that event recap on MYX, but for now, check out the full A100 list here and see which Filipinos made it on the list below.
