WASHINGTON, D.C. - Thursday, December 23, 2021 - FiscalNote’s CEO & Cofounder, Tim Hwang, was invited and participated in a White House-sponsored Business Roundtable meeting of prominent CEOs and business leaders this week that addressed a broad range of economic, workforce, and social challenges faced by Asian American and Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander (AA and NHPI) communities in the United States.
The listening session and roundtable discussion was sponsored by the White House Initiative on Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (WHIANHPI), which was established by an Executive Order signed by the President on May 28, 2021. The Initiative’s purpose, as outlined in the Order, is to “advance equity, justice, and opportunity for AA and NHPI communities by coordinating Federal interagency policymaking and program development efforts to eliminate barriers to equity, justice, and opportunity faced by AA and NHPI communities, including by advancing policies, programs, and initiatives.”
“As an Asian American technology founder, I applaud the efforts of the White House to foster more equality, opportunity, and inclusion for the AA and NHPI community, while working to end economic and racial biases in our communities,” said Hwang. “Coming from a family that emigrated from South Korea, I hope we can continue to do more as a country to ensure the needs and challenges of the community are adequately represented.”
Administration representatives participating in the session included attendees from the National Economic Council, the White House Initiative on AA and NHPI, and the White House Office of Public Engagement.
