Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month

By: Jenny Ng, CMP | Published by MPI Toronto Chapter | May 3, 2023


What is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month?

Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month is a month-long celebration that recognizes the contributions of Asian American and Pacific Islanders.

Here are three ways you can celebrate this month and support API Event professionals year-round. 

  1. Support #APIEventProfs.

    APIEventProfs are Asian Pacific Islander (API) event professionals and allies who strive to improve API representation in the meetings and events industry. Through education, advocacy, and allyship, we elevate and amplify API voices and create a community to ensure visibility, inclusion, and belonging.

    API Event Profs social media groups:



    Skift Meetings recently wrote an article on Asian hate and actions for the meeting and events industry. The article provides a great overview of the lack of visibility and importance of addressing these issues. As API Event professionals, we continue to have societal and workplace barriers. We continuously must prove our value and that we belong while at the same time having to worry about Asian hate and safety.  

    We invite you to join our monthly community chats on the last Wednesday of the month around different topics.

  2. Educate yourself and learn from the community itself.

    Watch a movie like the Academy Award® winner Everything Everywhere All at Once, read a book or listen to music by API creators, as representation matters.

  3. Celebrate the month.

There are many local events that celebrate this month through programming and festivities.

Join the API Heritage Month Celebration Festival who is offering a hybrid event on May 6, 2023.
