Asian Community Empowerment (ACE)
Updated: May 3, 2022
In the spirit of advancing our culture of inclusion, we are thrilled to introduce our newest employee resource group (ERG) — Asian Community Empowerment, or ACE for short — which officially launched in December 2020 with three chapters: East Coast, Endoscopy, and Neurovascular. The virtual kickoff event reached more than 700 employees!
ACE’s mission is to be an employee resource group within Stryker to develop a network of employees that promotes Asian cultural diversity and the professional development of its members, thereby creating a supportive environment for all and contributing to Stryker’s success. ACE will advance the understanding and inclusion of employees with a common background, set of interests, and goals with our allies.
ACE plans to focus on the following four key areas:
"Kim Chan, and I are so proud and grateful to be founders of ACE. It’s incredible to see our team’s vision finally come to fruition! Our team is excited to champion the voices of our colleagues and bring a fresh perspective to the DE&I dialogues and bring cultural education to the forefront of our initiatives. Together, we are stronger!"
