In a little less than a month, I will be joining my father and sisters for the grand opening of a very special educational center named in honor of my mother, Ruth Mulan Chu Chao. Our mother was a formidable woman in her own right, serving as an inspiration not only to us, but to a large community of Asian Americans who witnessed her dedication to education, history and philanthropy. Harvard Business School’s new Ruth Mulan Chu Chao Center will open its doors on June 6th, and as a fitting tribute to my mother, will be the first building on campus named for a woman and for a person of East Asian ancestry.
