Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

More Asian voices.
More inclusion.

More of this. Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
We’re celebrating creators from the Asian American and Pacific Islander community who are empowered by technology to shape American culture in ways that enrich people from all backgrounds.

We all must come together to end hate crimes against Asian Americans.

Our Asian American and Pacific Islander colleagues, customers, and communities continue to be victims of discrimination and violence. As part of our support for those raising awareness and building prevention efforts, we’ve donated $10,000 each to Stop AAPI Hate and Asian Americans Advancing Justice.

She believes disability is not inherently a setback; it’s the lack of accommodation in our world that’s the problem. As a disability advocate, she has embraced the power of technology to foster community for disabled people by connecting them to each other and using their collective power and influence to build a more accessible and inclusive world.
