Building Leaders and Beyond

Asian Pacific Islander professionals strive for Limitless Leadership, leadership in the workplace, family, and community, where leadership traits transcend space, geography, and time. As NAAAP reaches its 40th anniversary, we look forward to the next 40 years when diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are not merely a marginal strategy but a core value in every organization and community. We lean into our principles of Leadership, Education, Accountability, and Diversity to grow and connect with limitless leadership.
