Often, the issues of the lack of Asian-Americans and women in the leadership sphere deservedly receive a lot of attention from both the media and the general populace. But have you ever thought about putting these two problems together and focusing in on a narrower, yet ever-important population? What can we do about Asian-American women?
Asian Americans are famous for putting emphasis on education. According to the most common stereotypes, they strive for that straight-A report card and excel in math and science. According to some, so many Asian-Americans seek spots in top-notch colleges that "affirmative action" has started to turn against a minority race. So what happens to that fierceness and diligence when we're talking about public service and community leadership?
If you are an Asian American woman aged 15-17, come to ASPIRE to discuss these issues with fellow aspiring Asian American female leaders of tomorrow's society! If not, please pass along this wonderful opportunity to a sister, a daughter, a niece, or a friend.
Not only will we have thought-provoking and stimulating conversations about these issues, we will also go through leadership training 101, with short exercises in public speaking and networking, etc.
