Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month is recognized

In honour of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Qurate Retail Group is using its production resources, television broadcasts, and digital platforms to elevate AAPI-owned businesses, as well as hosting events for team members to celebrate the history, contributions, and achievements of the APPI community. 
More than a dozen AAPI-owned businesses spanning beauty, home décor, electronics, kitchen/culinary, and wellness have been chosen to participate in Qurate Retail Group’s Small Business Spotlight in May, which provides entrepreneurs from underrepresented groups with national on-air and digital exposure, as well as other in-kind services. Five will share their brand stories on-air on QVC and HSN throughout the month, and nine more will appear on QVC2 in a one-hour special on May 15 at 3 p.m. ET. Qualifying businesses will also get the opportunity to be highlighted in a month-long Zulily event. On QVC.com and HSN.com, you can learn more about the participating businesses this month.
