Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month by paying tribute to Yuji Ichioka, an American historian and civil rights activist best known for his work in Asian American studies. As an adjunct professor, he coined the term “Asian American.” Ichioka helped establish the Asian American studies program at UCLA, and with his wife, founded the Yuji Ichioka and Emma Gee Endowment for Social Justice and Immigration Studies at UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center.

AAPI HERITAGE MONTH
Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society. Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates women of color, like Mary Golda Ross, a teacher of math and science, the first Native American female engineer, and a founding member of Skunk Works. Ross was also known for her encouragement of Native Americans to pursue careers in math, science, and engineering, delivering lectures at high schools and colleges around the country.
