In 2019, Irvine commissioned a survey of Asian-American and Pacific Islander workers in California. Research and politicians often group AAPI Californians together, even though they represent a diversity of countries and speak more than a dozen languages. In the absence of community-specific data, the grouping of multiple populations often masks experiences and perspectives.
The November 2019 report offers detailed data for nine AAPI communities: Chinese, Filipino, South Indian, Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, Cambodian, Hmong, and Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders. To learn more about how each population is faring at work and in achieving the California Dream, please read more from the report and our blog post on the findings.
In coming weeks, this page will include additional resources:
The Foundation will host two nonprofit/funder briefings for the 2019 AAPI California Worker Survey. We are partnering with Southern California Grantmakers, Northern California Grantmakers and Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy to cohost events in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
