Be a part of groundbreaking AAPI Youth Leadership research!
Survey Closes: Friday, December 23, 2022
The time for AAPI girls and gender-expansive to tell their stories is long overdue. Help in this crucial work by sharing the survey with AAPI girls and gender-expansive youth in your community.
Girls Leadership, along with research firm Evaluation Studio and the AAPI Youth Research Council, are embarking on a national study to change this and learn how ethnicity and culture impact the leadership development of AAPI girls.
Why is this important? Due to the model minority myth, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are often unseen and unheard. But they’re the fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S., accounting for 7.7% of the nation’s total population at 24 million in 2020 — nearly double that of 2000’s AAPI population of 12.7 million. While there is data on the general AAPI population, no research exists on AAPI girls.
