The International Leadership Foundation (ILF) hosted the 2021 ILF Virtual Leadership and Business Conference on July 24, 2021.
Featured speakers included Hon. Elaine L. Chao – the 24th U.S. Secretary of Dept. of Labor and 18th U.S. Secretary of the Dept. of Transportation, Ambassador Katherine Tai, William Wang – CEO of Vizio, and Rep. Judy Chu. The conference brought together distinguished Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) business and community leaders, entrepreneurs, and ILF Civic Fellows with over
1,000 unique views on social media. Since 2020, many in the AANHPI community have faced difficulties and challenges, whether due to the Covid-19 pandemic, economic downturn or anti-Asian violence and hate. But as vaccines have become widely available, the economy has opened back up, businesses are re-opening, and more measures are being put in place at the local and national levels to combat anti-Asian hate, we are hopeful for a brighter future. Together as a community we will move forward and thrive.

Michelle Steel, Solomon Chen – CEO and Founder of Superior Communications Inc., Dr. Paul Hsu – ILF Chairman, Erika L.
