Asian American women are leading the way at UW

This is a fantastic photo for every reason. Taken by George Liu of the Northwest Asian Weekly, it shows, from left, UW Alumni Association President Colleen Fukui-Sketchley, University of Washington Interim President Phyllis Wise, and UW Student Regent Frances Youn.

The Weekly says this trio “represents a paradigm shift in leadership for America.”  A UW Alumni Association president who is a Japanese American, a UW interim president who is also Chinese American, and a UW student regent who is a Korean American. And all three of them are women.

The University of Washington community is proud of its diversity. Here is another shining example.
