**What does APIDA mean?**
APIDA stands for Asian Pacific Islander Desi American and we choose to use this term to be more mindful and inclusive of individuals who make up the Asian American diaspora.

**More about the hosts:**
SASE’s mission is to prepare rising scientists and engineers for finding success in the global business world, celebrate diversity on campuses and the workplace, and provide opportunities for members to give back. We have planned many professional networking events with companies such as GE, P&G, SharkNinja, Jacobs, Draper, etc. We strive to create a welcoming environment fostering the growth of young leaders and preparing our members for their respective industries.

UTSAV, named for the Sanskrit word meaning “Festival,” was started in 1991 by a handful of South Asian students. Now in its 27th year, UTSAV has grown into a large community of over 250 South Asian and South Asian American students, and continues to strive to provide them with a sense of belonging, along with supplying fun, unique, and thoughtful opportunities for all Northeastern students to learn about South Asian heritage and identity.We represent students from Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Although we represent these six countries, we encourage those of any background to engage with us to navigate South Asian culture, tradition, and context. We hope you join our community, attend our events, perform in our shows, and come share your stories with us!
