The event started with a powerful keynote from Dr. Roland Sintos Coloma, Professor at Wayne State University and ACENet Co-Founder. Roland led a critical conversation that helped the attendees think about Asian solidarity and addressing exclusion while moving towards inclusion in our education system. Attendees were able to ask questions to Roland and reflect both independently and collectively in moderated groups.
Prizes, in what now seems to be a common occurrence, were randomly selected for attendees. Congratulations to our winners: Abby, Elaine, Felisa, Jason, Rose, and Susan!
