Our Profile The Asian American Government Executives Network (AAGEN), founded in 1993, is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-partisan organization of the highest ranking Asian Pacific American career and appointed executives, foreign service officers, legislative and judiciary members, and military officers in the Federal, state, and local governments. Our History In early 1993, several Federal Asian American senior executives met informally to become better acquainted, to explore the possibilities of setting a more structured network, and to find ways to identify other executives. It was agreed that through a network, we would be able to establish a high level voice and representation for ourselves and other Asian Americans in Federal service, to help each other, and to maintain visibility that other similar organizations have achieved for their respective interests. In the ensuing months, the group grew quickly with executives representing more than 20 Federal agencies, and the network was formed.

Mission: To promote, expand and support Asian American and Pacific Islander leadership in Government.

Noguchi, who passed in 1988, is the first Asian American artist to be featured in the White House collection. Noguchi’s piece, titled “Floor Frame,” was a gift from the privately funded, nonprofit historical association.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month!
For many, home is a place of love, warmth, and comfort; where you are surrounded by care and support. But for millions of others, home is anything but a sanctuary. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are victims of physical violence by a partner every year.

The Asian American Government Executives Network (AAGEN) mourns the loss of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, who passed away early this week from cardiac arrest at age 65.

Mayor Lee epitomized the leadership qualities that AAGEN promotes of an outstanding civil servant. He served as a role model for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) in government service. In 2011, Lee was elected the 43rd mayor of San Francisco, becoming the city’s first mayor of Chinese descent. After being appointed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, he won his first full term later that year, and won re-election in 2015. Previously, he served as director of the city’s Human Rights Commission from 1991 to 1996, and then as city administrator from 2005 leading up to his mayoral election. He was well known and respected in the Bay Area.

Mayor Lee will be remembered for his advocacy on immigrant rights and affordable housing. He was one of the first to declare a sanctuary city policy to protect immigrants, promising that "San Francisco is and always will be a sanctuary city." He also worked to create more affordable homes in the city, most importantly following the housing crisis that resulted from the tech boom.

Mayor Lee was an exemplary public servant and a fierce advocate for the AAPI community.

AAGEN Chairperson Vivian Chen says, "Mayor Lee was a champion of AAPI civil rights and supporter of AAPIs. His legacy will continue to serve as an inspiration to the work of AAPI government workers for generations to come who are committed to making a difference in public service."
