Company Description

The RepresentASIAN Project™ is a Canadian platform dedicated to celebrating, advocating and elevating Asian representation and voices in media and beyond.

We’re a team of Asians based in Canada who are passionate about celebrating and amplifying the Asian community. We grew up not seeing people who looked like us on television, in movies, in books and in magazines, and we recognize how the lack of representation can impact the mental health of BIPOC individuals. Despite the current rise of Asian representation in media, there is still plenty of room for improvement when it comes to representing Asians in many different areas of life.

Our mission is to share and tell stories of successful Asians in their respective industries to inspire and motivate members of the Asian community to achieve their dreams. We want to celebrate the joys of being Asian and put a spotlight on all of the incredible things our community members do.
