    Let’s bring the issue of glass ceilings home to Delaware.  Are there glass ceilings in corporations and universities of Delaware?  Indeed, how about the state government?”

    S.B. Woo is a retired physics professor and former Lt. Governor of Delaware.  He was born in Shanghai, China, and came to the United States from Hong Kong at the age of 18.  He is the president of The 80-20 Educational Foundation (EF), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on winning equal opportunity in the workplace and equal justice for ALL Asian Pacific Americans.  80-20 EF’s first step in fulfilling this mission is to create a community-wide awareness of pervasive workplace discrimination against Asian Americans, thereby hoping to induce awareness and will to take action. 80-20 EF is also educating the community on the importance of group political clout. He was also the founding president of The 80-20 PAC, Inc. from 2002 to 2006 that works on organizing Asian Pacific Americans (APAs) into a swing bloc vote in presidential elections, thereby inducing both major political parties to compete serving the rightful interests of the APA community.  His past experiences include being the Founding President of the Faculty Bargaining Unit at the University of Delaware, its Chief Spokesman and Chief Negotiator; a Trustee of the University of Delaware; an Institute Fellow at the Institute of Politics, the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University; and serving as the National President of the Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA).

    His bio can be found in The Congressional Record of 2/5/2007. He is also listed in Who’s Who in America.  A life-sized picture of him is displayed in Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington D.C. In 2000, aMagazine ranked him the 6th of the 25 Most Influential Asian Americans.

    He received his B.S., summa cum laude, in Mathematics and Physics from Georgetown College in Kentucky and his Ph.D. in Physics from Washington University in St. Louis in 1964.

    To send an unmistakable signal of personal devotion – that his mission in working to champion equality for all Asian Americans through 80-20 has no personal gain or interest whatsoever – S. B. has pledged never to run for a political office or accept a government appointment for the rest of his life.
