LOS ANGELES, May 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gold House, the leading Asian and Pacific Islander (API) changemaker community that unites, invests in, and promotes API creative and companies, commences API Heritage Month with its 2022 A100 List, the definitive honor recognizing the year's 100 most impactful APIs.
Honorees will be celebrated at the Gold Gala on May 21, the largest gathering of API cultural leaders in history, in collaboration with Meta and Procter & Gamble. The historic fete continues Gold House's long-standing partnership with Meta, empowering APIs through inclusive programming. The List supports P&G's new campaign launching May 4 to encourage the proper pronunciation of API names, and accessible COVID-19 vaccine resources from We Can Do This.
This year's theme — "New Gold Age" — celebrates transformative API excellence.
"Though the news cycle may have moved on, challenges facing the API community remain. It's vitally important that we continue to reclaim our narrative by honoring the achievements of those of us making a positive impact on our world today," says A100 judge Daniel Dae Kim.
Honorees are selected across five industry categories by multicultural icons and nonprofits. Special recognition is given to those demonstrating the greatest impact in each category:
Mayors Michelle Wu, Aftab Pureval, Bruce Harrell
Actor-writer Simu Liu
ClassPass Founder Payal Kadakia
Olympian Chloe Kim
Doordash CEO Tony Xu
Three Legends are honored for their lifelong dedication to advancing API excellence:
Dwayne Johnson
Michelle Yeoh
Mindy Kaling
"Our differences are our greatest strengths, and recognizing representation in entertainment and amplifying the voices and contributions of our AAPI community is of the highest importance," explains Dwayne Johnson.
"I could not be more proud of my Black and Samoan heritage," he continues, "and one of my greatest passions in life is enriching my daughters' lives with our people's history so they also understand the importance of our great ancestry and its meaning. Both cultures represent love, respect and power that ignites the universal feeling of family, our mana, and nodding to those who paved the road before us so that the 'rough places are made plain' and we can pursue our dreams today. Let us embrace, celebrate and illuminate the Asian American and Pacific Islanders, and all people of color, who contribute to making this country great today and every day."
Payal Kadakia adds, "Everyone's identity is like a rope that's braided together. When our separate strands are woven into one, we become far more beautifully complex and stronger, with the strands reinforcing one another—strength in unity."
To shift perceptions of belonging, Gold House and P&G are celebrating authentic API diversity through the proper pronunciation of Honorees' names. Their partnership supports P&G's campaign to empower APIs to embrace their chosen identity and encourage others to learn correct API name pronunciation as a first step to belonging.
Additional Gala partners include Hennessy, Hotel Indigo, and Panda Restaurant Group.

We’re about to wrap up 2022, and it's time to take stock of the stock market. Earlier this month, we got some good news on inflation – the November data showed the rate of price increases slowing to 7.1% annualized, from 7.7% in the prior month. That was followed by the Federal Reserve’s seventh interest rate hike of the year, an increase of 50-basis points that marked a slowdown from the previous run of four 75 bp hikes. But comments from Fed Chair Jerome Powell have made it clear that, while t

A new estimate from Insider Intelligence, though, puts the company's global annual ad sales at $10.7 billion by the end of 2024.
Big dividend yields can be alluring. Unfortunately, many higher-yielding dividends are at high risk of getting cut if market conditions deteriorate. Because of that, yield-focused investors should avoid that stock and instead consider buying Energy Transfer (NYSE: ET) or Verizon (NYSE: VZ).
After three winning sessions in a row, the stock market fell on Thursday when the weekly jobless claims came in below the expectations. That data point indicated continued tightness in the labor market, but the Federal Reserve has been hoping to see signs of a moderate increase in unemployment, to indicate that the anti-inflationary rate increases are taking hold. Barring that evidence, the Fed is likely to continue raising rates and tightening monetary policy, increasing the risk of recession.
Despite ongoing supply chain issues and headwinds like price inflation, EV penetration in America nearly doubled in the U.S. in the first ten months of 2022, going to 5.3% of all vehicles sold, versus 2.9% last year. Experian data shows new car registrations hit 604,638 EV vehicles, more than 60% versus a year ago. But the easiest way to grow that EV number, beyond initiatives like expanding EV charging networks and increasing incentives (which we’ll get too), is making EVs cheaper. Here’s why 2023 could be the year we’ll see cheaper EVs.
