"My career trajectory after Stanford was heavily influenced by my work at the A³C. I focused on social justice work – as an attorney at the ACLU and Associate Director of the City of San Francisco Department on the Status of Women."
On an ongoing basis, the Asian American Activities Center (A³C) collaborates with the Stanford Alumni Association (SAA) to identify class leaders and plan events that appeal to the increasingly diverse group of alumni. The center also works in partnership with SAA in planning Homecoming Reunion each October. A³C also collaborates with the Stanford Asian Pacific American Alumni Club (SAPAAC) to co-sponsor various events throughout the year to promote involvement of Asian American alums.

Alumni are inducted in honor of their distinguished service to their communities and society at large. Each year the award is presented by the community centers at a festive ceremony and reception during Reunion Homecoming Weekend sponsored by the Stanford Alumni Association.
