Gold House has unveiled its annual A100, the list that honors the 100 Asian Pacific leaders impacting American culture and society. The list includes names like Sandra Oh, Ke Huy Quan, Joanna Gaines and Angels baseball player Shohei Ohtani.

“Gold House’s A100 List is a vital representation of the diverse opportunities and achievements of and for Asian Pacific leaders. Becoming begins with seeing–and it shows how we’re just getting started. I’m so proud to be part of past classes and applaud this year’s class.” said Michelle Yeoh, Academy Award-winning actor, Gold House A100 Hall of Famer, and inaugural Gold Gala Honoree last year.

Gold House will celebrate these honorees through a slate of events from May 5 through May 7, including the Gold Gala on May 6, the premier and most-viewed Asian Pacific gathering, which convenes over 750 Asian Pacific and multicultural luminaries across industries and highlights several major initiatives that will define the next wave of the Asian Pacific movement.

“In the past year, from Everything Everywhere All At Once at the Oscars to IPOs on the NYSE and NASDAQ, we’ve moved from Asian Pacific community firsts to global industry firsts. This is no longer about just having a seat at the table or belonging–the A100 and the powerful Gold Gala are about building new houses by breaking established ceilings for all communities.” said Bing Chen and Jeremy Tran, CEO and COO of Gold House. “By distilling and punctuating the Asian Pacific community’s essential impact on culture, we reimagine what’s possible for our community and redefine how we’re seen in society.”
