The Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE) was founded nearly 14 years ago to help Asian-heritage professionals in the scientific and engineering fields achieve their full potential. Through its rich programming and events, it has continued to support these individuals in a number of ways, including helping members celebrate their Asian heritage, advocate for diversity on campus and in the workplace, and give back to the community. Over the past year, as the Asian-American community has endured an increase in hate and violence, SASE helped younger members find their voice and use SASE’s platform to stand for social justice and racial equity.
