AACC Serves as Partner for Shape of the Region 2021!

The Asian American Chamber of Commerce was one of the presenting partners that supported the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia for this year's "Shape of the Region" virtual conference on Thursday, March 11th.  The goal for the event was to inspire all sectors of our society – especially the private sector - to lean in on the biggest challenges and opportunities facing our region. And what better way to inspire action than through STORY. The 2021 Shape of the Region was crafted to be a series of stories about successful and innovative cross sector collaborations that have promoted social and economic mobility, racial justice and equity, and more inclusive systems of economic growth. 

The event featured several prominent presenters, education and business leaders, and elected officials within our area that are significantly contributing to social and economic justice in the work they do that supports our robust economy. 

Dr. Cindy Shao, President/Founder, of AACC gave her supporting remarks in the opening video that kicked off the 2021 conference.  AACC invites you to view the "Shape of the Region" recorded presentation on the organization's YouTube channel at
