"The potential for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the communications field is vast. I applaud the VOICES initiative because it helps people develop their skills and capabilities so they can fulfill their potential and aspirations in our profession."
Chief Joy Officer

"I’ve always loved stories and, not surprisingly, eventually found my way to journalism and PR. What I love about PR is that we can be “story tellers” and, better yet, “story makers” who can help create a brighter future for ourselves and others. It’s important that this brighter future is informed by the imagination, ideas and voices of AAPIs."

"I have found the communications profession to be fulfilling beyond words. It allows you to align with your interests and passions better than most other occupations, and those who are sufficiently skilled can work in almost any industry or country. I hope VOICES improves the flow of new talent and perspectives into our field, making it even more relevant and impactful."
