The 11th Annual WWAAC Awards (Who’s Who in Asian American Communities) honored four outstanding Asian-American leaders and role models from across the nation. The WWAAC Awards are dedicated to honoring successful Asians who serve as leaders and role models in their respective communities. The purpose of the WWAAC Awards is to recognize the accomplishments of these leaders, publicize their achievements, and promote the Asian American community into mainstream America.

The WWAAC Alliance Foundation is a non-profit organization created to advance and benefit the lives of Asian American Pacific Islanders; to educate the public and bring about awareness, understanding and appreciation of the diverse cultures and ethnic background of Asian Americans; to serve as a platform and source by recognizing, highlighting and honoring Asian Americans who have contributed greatly to various sectors of society; and to create, promote, and disseminate compelling and impactful information about the needs and concerns of the Asian community through events such as conferences, seminars, panel discussions, television programming, symposiums, and other charitable events.
