AE2C Giving Tuesday Campaign

This year we were thankful that AE2C was able to resume its pre-pandemic activity by organizing in-person events once again!

In addition to hosting virtual meet-ups/happy hours, this summer AE2C hosted an in-person workshop in Washington DC to assist the US Department of Energy to showcase the employment opportunities being offered in the Clean Energy Job Corps, and how to tap into the talent pools offered by diverse communities.

This fall, we launched our newest chapter in Massachusetts, accompanied by a symposium on Energy Justice during the clean energy transition, featuring speakers at the federal and state level.

This Giving Tuesday, please consider making a generous contribution to AE2C so we can continue our work in 2023 to connect Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and like-minded professionals in the energy and environment sectors. We have a full slate of programs for next year and ask for your support.

What do we mean by Asia?

Asia is Earth's largest continent, with more than 60% of the world's population (4.7 billion people in 2022) stretching across 51 countries from Turkey in the West to Australia in the East. Asia represents more than 1/3 of global economic output.

The diversity of nations, cultures, languages, and religions makes Asia a melting pot of ideas, arts, and commerce. The top spoken languages in Asia are Chinese (29.1%), Hindi (12.2%), Bengali (5.9%), Arabic (3.2%), and Punjabi (3.1%). The world's major religions including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Zoroastrianism were all born in and first spread across Asia.

Asian Americans, nearly 24 million (according to the 2020 census) have grown by 56% since 2010. The three largest Asian American origin groups are Chinese (5.4 million), Indians (4.6 million), and Filipinos (4.2 million) with Vietnamese, Japanese, and Koreans having communities of more than 1.5 million each in the United States. Geographically nearly half of Asian Americans live in the West and a third in California alone. More than 50% of Asian Americans have a college degree and more Asian Americans live in multigenerational households (25%) than the American population as a whole. The diversity of the Asian American experience inspires AE2C's work in the energy, environment, and commerce sectors.

While AE2C is deeply rooted in the "values, business practices and cultures" of Asia and the United States, membership in AE2C is open to individuals and organizations of all origins and backgrounds. Our members and leaders have wide networks across American and Asian societies which we share through AE2C. We thrive on the meeting of diverse ideas and experiences and welcome all to join and contribute to our work!
