About the Logo
The wordmark represents the values, mission, and goals of APACT as well as its identity as a Caltech Employee Resource Group (ERG). It symbolizes the space to discuss, share, and celebrate AAPI heritage and issues. The overall "A" shape represents the AAPI community; the inner circle represents a protected safe space to explore identity; the inner triangle represents the element of fire, drawing parallels to the torch in the Caltech seal. The logo was designed by George Ko.
