The First. The Youngest. The Best. And the Only.

The A100 honors the most impactful Asian American & Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) in culture every May for AAPI Heritage Month. Honorees pioneer new enterprises as founders; herald new industries in the C-suite; transform culture through historic creative endeavors; and set unmatched global sports records. This year is especially momentous as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of “Asian American.”
A100 Selection Process
A100 Honorees are selected through a multi-phase, cross-cultural and cross-industry process. Open nominations call for the most impactful Asians of the past year who represent the future of their industries in each of the five cultural industries: Activism, Advocacy & Politics, Finance & Business, Lifestyle & Sports, Media & Entertainment, and Technology & Innovation.
Semi-finalists are then selected based on the most nominations submitted. Final Honorees are announced on May 1st every year and chosen by the A100 Selection Committee, an esteemed group of Asian and multicultural pioneers; nearly 100 of the nation’s leading Asian organizations; and Gold House members.
