ASPIRE (Asian Sisters Participating in Reaching Excellence) will hold its 5th Annual Asian American Women in Leadership (AAWIL) Conference on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Boston University’s Photonics Center.
This year’s theme is “Fearless Leadership: Taking Charge with Confidence,” and will include a morning keynote by Carmen Van Kerckhove, co-founder and president of a diversity education firm, New Demographic, and an afternoon keynote by Rosie Abriam, president and CEO of The Center for Asian Pacific American Women.
There will also be great panel discussions including “The Leader Within You” and “Making the Right Moves” and the presentation of the 2009 Outstanding Woman of the Year Award.
As their website states, this conference will be a great opportunity for Asian American women to:
– Build upon last year’s theme of “Balanced Leadership: Maintaining Perspective”
– Gather cross-generational Asian American women from across the continental US with diverse personal and professional backgrounds to share their experiences of “Fearless Leadership”
– Discuss the various aspects of continuous leadership development to make lasting, positive changes in our communities
– Celebrate and explore ways Asian American girls and women exercise “Fearless Leadership” by leveraging our personal unique identities and interest
