On March 13, 2018 ASIAN, Inc. hosted sessions in the Silicon Valley and San Francisco with Holly Ham, the new Executive Director of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders. The sessions were part of Ms. Ham's National Meet-and-Greet Tour.

The Silicon Valley session took place at the Silicon Valley Foundation office in San Mateo, and hosted business leaders from chain franchises to large tech companies. Ms. Ham was able to discuss and listen to business issues from those in attendance.

After the Silicon Valley session, Ms. Ham traveled north to ASIAN, Inc. headquarters for her San Francisco session. This session was attended by well-regarded community-based and government organizations, who were concerned on the state of Asian American advocacy.

Ms. Ham was able to gain great insight in the issues facing the Northern California Asian American community, and hopefully will bring the participants' concerns from the sessions back to Washington DC.
