Draft Vision Statement:

We visualize our Lab community as a place in which API members can bring their whole selves to work and be valued and receive support to reach their fullest potential; a diverse community that affirms the contributions of and supports each individual; a community that celebrates each other and stands up for each other.

Draft Mission Statement:

The Asian and Pacific Islander Employee Resource Group is committed to:

  • Ensuring API employees have access to the support and capacity building they need to reach their fullest potential,
  • Sharing and raising awareness about issues facing API employees and the community at large,
  • Educating the Lab community about rich and varied cultures encompassed by API heritage,
  • Partnering with other ERGs to ensure equity of opportunity and recognition for all,
  • Serving as a resource for the wider Lab community to further the IDEA effort,
  • Standing in solidarity against racial inequity and discrimination in all forms within our Lab community and work to build an environment that provides equal respect and opportunity for all.
