Celebrating Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month


By Draftfcb Chicago
 
Draftfcb continues to celebrate its diversity with an employee reflection on Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. The U.S. Congress chose May to commemorate the Heritage Month since the first Japanese people immigrated to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.
 
Thanks to Crystal Zhong, supervisor, strategic analytics, Draftfcb Chicago, for sharing with us who she looks up to in the Asian-Pacific American community.
