Owning & Accelerating Your Upward Mobility

with Colonel Danielle Ngo, Captain Mi Phan, Chief Petty Officer Kim Nguyen

(Special session during diversity career fair)

Out of school and looking for a purpose? Consider your options with one of our government’s eight uniformed services. We will have a panel of AAPI women who have broken barriers while wearing the uniform, both on the front lines and in support.

These women were able to maneuver through perceived stereotypes and family misconceptions to achieve their senior positions in a typically male dominated force. You’ll not only learn about the traditional military services but those of the non-combatant uniformed services for professionals.

Impact of API Arts & Entertainment Industry on the Future Landscape of Leadership

with Jae Jinh

Everywhere you look there are API actors and musicians growing in influence and breaking down barriers. How and why has the API arts and entertainment industry been able to gain these seats at the table? What can each of us do to amplify their efforts? How is this representation helpful and harmful for us?

In this session, we’ll be taking you all on a journey of legacy, courage, Asian heritage, self-actualization, and connection with community. You will leave with your own commitment to better understand and leverage these lead indicators of shifting roles for APIs in leadership.
