We’ve created a series of meetups for everyone to enjoy and meet other Asian Pacifiks in the industry. Our goal is for a monthly, or semi-monthly, meetup of AANHPI creatives and executives.

Our Meetups Are...


Asians and Allies gather to build community, foster relationships, and build a professional network. 

Everyone is invited. Director, Actors, Crew, Costume, Writers, Producers, Accounting, and everyone in between. 

When is our next event?

Please stay subscribed for updates and we’ll let you know when then next one in. 

Code of Conduct

Building community means asking what can we do together. 

What does it mean to be apart of the Strong Asian Lead community?

Here are 11 basic codes of conduct in our spaces and outside our spaces. (June 2022)

  • Everyone is equal in our spaces.

    No one person’s credits, lack of credits, followers, financial status, or job position is better or more important than the other.

  • Allyship welcomed.

    If you don't identify with Asian/Pacific we ask that you give space for those that do and listen and learn from the Asian/Pacifics.

  • Everyone's story and opinions matter.

    Each of our members has a story to tell, either about themselves, a fictional character, or of someone else. No one has the right to tell you that your story doesn’t matter, nor do you have the right to tell someone else their story doesn’t matter or can’t be done. 

  • This is a safe space.

    This is a space for Asian Pacifics to both express themselves authentically and feel empowered to take lead in conversations.

  • Ask more questions than explaining.

    Before you ask someone for a favor, you must offer what you can do for them.

  • Take space, leave space.

    Talk about yourself. Ask about them. Listen. Ask more questions. Listen more.

  • Offer/share resources and advice.

    This is a space where members ask how they can help, offer advice, or tangible actions more than asking for support, money, and/or services.

  • Be human. Treat others as humans.

    Be a human looking to connect. Don’t be a walking advertisement for yourself. 

  • Don't sell yourself, share about yourself.

    No one likes to be sold to, but everyone is interested in a good origin story.

  • Offer favors more than asking for a favor.

    Before you ask someone for a favor, you must offer what you can do for them. If you have nothing to offer, you may not ask them to do something for you. 3. This includes reading scripts, watching short films, or being put in touch with their contacts. That person can offer, but you may not ask. Not a rule, just good etiquette.

  • Be helpful, not judgemental.

    Volunteering is a good way to build trust and relationships.

  • Racism, colorism, sexism, ageism, ableism, and other isms will not be tolerated.

Anyone violating the code of conduct will be asked to leave.
