This Committee of 100 event will be a fireside chat interview of Andrew Yang, an Asian American businessman, attorney, lobbyist, and political candidate. Yang is best known for being a candidate in the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries and the 2021 New York City Democratic mayoral primary. He is the co-chair of the Forward Party, alongside former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman.
The interview intends to explore his personal history before he entered politics, his motivations for running for office and what he went through as he organized his campaigns, his view of the obstacles that have faced Asian Americans who have run for office, and the lessons he has learned and would like to share with his fellow Asian Americans.
The interview will be conducted by Peter Young, Committee of 100 member and Chair of the Committee of 100 Asian American Career Ceiling Initiative. The webinar will be one hour long. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions during the last ten minutes of the webinar.
