A business and technology innovator, Mr. Xu worked at Square, McKinsey & Company and eBay, and was included in Fortune’s “40 Under 40” list in 2020. DoorDash had its IPO in December 2020.

Participants share a common goal of advocating for and promoting the full participation of all Chinese Americans in American society.

The must-attend event will take place at the Signia by Hilton San Jose May 5-6. Content will focus on diplomacy, economic interdependence, education, technology, anti-Asian hate, and more.
