#GiveBig is a special day of giving because all online contributions processed on May 3rd will be eligible for matching funds from The Seattle Foundation. The more money EDI raises, the more money we receive from them! This is a rare opportunity to "stretch" your dollars and support our professional leadership programs.
Can't wait until May 3rd to get your donation in? You can pledge your donation now through May 2nd and your gift will automatically process on May 3rd. It's that easy. Together we will continue to build a community of #DiverseGlobalLeaders.
We're less than a week away from celebrating Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month. On May 1st, join us for a FAMILY-FRIENDLY, FREE, and of course, FUN event!
EDI alums are always giving back to their communities, and we're happy to announce Kyle Theptee & Marci Nakano will be co-emcees of the main event and Joe Darza and Jody Fang will be co-emcees of the Hum-Bow Eating Contest!
Tune into KKNW 1150AM today as Jody & Joe give details on the API Heritage Month Celebration!

Q:"Lately I've run into Asian colleagues that say they have obtained a "seat at the table" but they don't feel heard or that no one is listening. It sounds like progress is being made and there is some visibility, but how can we become part of the conversation?"
