Change the world!
Join us for an event you do not want to miss. We are bringing together more than 300 self-identified AAPI women and girls to share their stories and learn from powerful AAPI women leaders who are changing the game in Politics, Business, Tech, Non-Profit Organizations, Philanthropy. Our speakers, panelists, interactive workshops, healing activities, and vendors will help us to identify our communities’ greatest challenges and assets. One of our goals is to identify and work to end the multiple forms of violence we experience. An end result: A very powerful day of recognition, celebration and transformation that will inspire self-identified AAPI women and girls to be even more powerful than they are, to support each other and our communities, and to change the world.
Allies and supporters are welcomed to join!
The U.S. Asian population grew 72% between 2000 and 2015 - from 11.9 million to 20.4 million. We have the fastest growth rate of any major racial or ethnic group in the United States (Pew Research, 2017). We are immigrants. We are American-born. We are refugees. We are students. We are business-owners. We are workers. We are professors. We are chefs. We are cooks. We are survivors. We are differently-abled. We are formerly incarcerated. We are fighters. We are leaders. Come join self-identified AAPI women and girls to build upon our growing network and movement to learn, share your experiences, and to help shape the progressive social and political power of our communities.
Scholarships are available.

We are bringing together some of the most brilliant AAPI women leaders in Business, Politics, Education, Technology, and more. Come to be inspired. Come to learn. Come to share. Come to connect. Come to build a movement together.
Our identities, experiences, and stories are diverse. Come to share and hear the stories of many other AAPI women and girls. What does it mean to be Asian and Pacific Islander in America?
