The Asian American Designers Union (AADU) is a platform for empowering Asian American professionals working in the built environment disciplines to grow personally and collectively. Our goal is to motivate professional development, foster leadership skills, and promote collaboration within and beyond the Washington, DC area. 



With the complex social and political situations we are facing in 2021, the theme of our events will place extra emphasis on social justice, through constant discussions about the role of professionals within the built environment, opportunities to use design tools to explore and share ways to reshape our communities, and the chances to make our voices heard.  

1. Advocate for the growth of the Asian American professionals within and beyond the Washington, D.C. area; 

2. Motivate individual professional developments and provide networking opportunities; and 

3. Promote dissemination and cross-pollination of Asian cultures in the design community.
