Hosts

Fung Bros

The Fung Bros are brothers David and Andrew Fung. Born and raised as the only Asian kids in a working-class suburb of Seattle, their outsider perspective and curiosity about their heritage led them to careers in comedy. They began with standup on the West Coast, and have since created an online empire of over 2 million followers. Their writing and humor focuses on the minutia of everyday, Asian-American life and culture with a particular emphasis on food.

Guest

Henry Golding

Henry Golding spent a decade as a TV host for Discovery Channel Asia and other Singapore-based programs until 2018, when he burst onto the Hollywood movie scene as the star of Crazy Rich Asians. Golding was born to a Malaysian mother and English father and spent the first part of his childhood in Malaysia. After school in England, he ended up heading to Asia to break into the TV business. His most notable TV program was probably Discovery Channel's Surviving Borneo. In 2017, Golding was the pick after a worldwide hunt to find the male lead for the film version of Kevin Kwan's bestselling novel, Crazy Rich Asians. At the same time, Golding joined Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively in the mystery thriller A Simple Favor (2018). He also starred in the film Monsoon that same year. In 2021, Henry was breakout success as the lead in Snake Eyes - his first action hero film. He married Liv Lo, a television presenter and social media maven, in 2016. They welcomed their first child this year.

This event for the broader AABDC professional community will bring together a panel of Asian American leaders who will discuss an overview of hate incidents, their impact on Asian American professional lives, supporting other Asian American employees, and self-healing via community engagement.
