Award: Outstanding Mid-Level Professional
Name: Delia Cheung Hom
Title: Director of the Asian American Center
Institution: Northeastern University
Quotes from nominator(s):
"As a professional, I strive to replicate her amazing qualities in reflection, challenge with compassion and lead with grace. Dr. Hom never seeks the limelight but her work speaks for herself. She has grown the Asian American Center at Northeastern University into what it is today."
"She believes in the power of voice, the strength in our community, and in a mission of justice. She conveys her philosophy through everything she does whether it be in her day-to-day interactions with students, campus-wide initiatives, or scholarly work with colleagues around the country. She believes in resilience, vulnerability, and authenticity. There are not many leaders who can show up every day and keep it real in the ways that Delia does. She is not afraid to exist as a complex being, and her role modeling this behavior continues to empower not only me, but all the students and colleagues she works with. Colleagues across campus and the nation look to Delia when seeking advice and perspective."
"Delia is a visionary and a force to be reckoned with. Our community is stronger because of Delia for she continues to pave the way so that students and colleagues can also live their lives honestly and authentically -- and to be unafraid of being APIDA."
Please help us in celebrating and recognizing Dr. Delia Cheung Hom's accomplishments by attending our annual API KC Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, March 6th from 6:00-7:00pm @ Loews Congress B. All are welcome.
