NASA celebrates Asian American, Pacific Islander heritage month


Washington: With a belief to unite a workforce inclusive of employees from diverse background, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, (NASA) has already given a number of prolific scientists to the world; and the month of May has been dedicated to celebrating the contributions of those amazing employees by NASA.

This May, to celebrate the contributions of its Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) employees – past and present, the American aeronautics organization has organized a variety of internal and external events and products centred on the theme: `Advancing Leaders Through Purpose-Driven Service`.

NASA Administrator Sen. Bill Nelson said, “Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders make valuable contributions to every aspect of our society, including NASA`s missions and successes.”

This year`s AAPI Heritage Month brings heightened awareness and significance, given the recent violence directed against Asian Americans.

“He further added that the Biden-Harris administration and NASA are committed to a culture of diversity and inclusion, where all employees are welcomed, respected, connected, and engaged.”
