2010 Asian American Women in Leadership Conference

I have a younger sister who is in college (Donate on the left to keep her in school). So when I was informed about the Asian American Leadership Conference, I felt compelled to let everyone know.

The Asian American Women in Leadership (AAWIL) Conference was started to set forth strategic dialogue on the importance of leadership for Asian American girls and women. Specifically, the conference is designed to: explore various aspects of leadership, particularly as it relates to Asian American women, evaluate the effectiveness of different leadership skills and styles, energize and equip attendees to seek out future leadership opportunities, create cross-generational networks among attendees that will extend discussions and relationships beyond the scope of the conference, and raise awareness about ASPIRE, its missions and value to Asian American girls and women. It is also the only conference for Asian American women of all ages on the east coast. Historically, our audience has ranged from high school students to professionals in their mid 30s. So far, we have been able to attract 150-200 attendees every year.

This year, the conference theme is Discovering the Leader Within. It will build upon last year's theme of "Fearless Leadership: Taking Charge with Confidence" and aims to encourage attendees to explore, learn, and flourish. The conference will be held on October 16th, 2010 at Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts. All the information can be found online at

With women leaders representing us across the country, gathering and strengthening Asian American Women is a progressive cause I believe in. There doesn't have to be one Judy Chu. For more information visit the Aspire website.
