The first official kickoff meeting for the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Caucus will be held over Zoom on Tuesday, June 11, at 7:00 p.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. PT. All AAPI AGMA Artists are encouraged to join. Register here.

In case you missed the original announcement, the mission of the AGMA AAPI Caucus is to foster an inclusive and equitable workplace for Asian American and Pacific Islander artists, acknowledging and respecting cultural and language diversities. This mission statement may evolve as the caucus develops.

This is a wonderful opportunity to join a supportive and empowering community within AGMA. Join the new caucus on June 11 to help shape its future!

The AAPI Caucus aims to provide networking, mentoring, and development opportunities for AAPI artists to support their growth and advancement within AGMA. Through educational events and activities, it also seeks to celebrate and promote awareness of AAPI cultures, challenges, perspectives, and experiences. The caucus will advocate for policies and practices that ensure equal access, treatment, and opportunities for AAPI artists. Additionally, it aims to protect AAPI artists from discrimination arising from language barriers and provide translation support when necessary. Another goal is to support recruiting, retaining, and promoting AAPI talent across AGMA. Finally, the caucus will partner with AGMA leadership and other groups to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion across the Union.
