CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION
This year marks NAAAP Boston’s 30th anniversary. Over the last 30 years, NAAAP has weathered many challenges and welcomed change as the workforce dynamics continued to evolve. We as Asian Americans also weathered many challenges and learned valuable lessons as we assimilated into the American dominant workforce. While Asian-American professionals have been struggling for decades against the proverbial “bamboo ceiling”, many have managed to break past it into positions of leadership. These leaders can serve as an inspiration to show that our cultural values should not be personal inhibitions that encumber our path to success. Instead, our values should integrate seamlessly into our working lives while we exhibit our leadership abilities.
Join us on October 28th and 29th at the Courtyard Boston Downtown as we celebrate NAAAP Boston’s 30-year Anniversary with a weekend-long Leadership and Professional Development Conference, full of interactive workshops, leadership panels, impressive keynote speakers, a career fair, a gala/awards dinner, and much more. This 2-day event will show us how to pave the way to becoming inspiring, forward-thinking, and strategic leaders in our personal and professional lives.
**Tickets marked with ALL INCLUSIVE means you get access to the conference, career fair and dinner gala. Career Fair & Information Session is FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC. ERG Panel (Session 3, Oct 28 afternoon) is FREE but with limited seats.**
