In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month this May, the Asian Alumni Chapter of the Graduate School of Business (GSB) is proud to offer an on-campus special screening of a new documentary film about the late San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee -- the first Asian American mayor of a major US city. The hour-long film presents the inspirational, humorous, and emotional story of this remarkable man and community leader, who passed away suddenly while in office.  Watch the film and learn how Ed Lee -- a son of immigrants, a pro bono lawyer-activist for tenants and garment workers, a habitual punster, and a reluctant politician -- became a history-making civic leader.

This documentary will reveal what Hillary Clinton, Steph Curry, Marc Benioff, Biz Stone, and Ron Conway all have in common.  

This special event includes a pre-screening networking hour with hosted drinks and hot appetizers, and a unique post-screening fireside chat with the film’s director Rick Quan, an Emmy award winning TV journalist, and Alvin Lau, one of the executive producers and a Stanford GSB alumnus.

Be among the first to see this film!  Register now to get your ticket.

One registered guest is welcome.
