We hope you enjoyed the inaugural virtual event for the USJC Women+ Forum held in June 2022. We are excited to be kicking off our second event – a month before our exciting Annual Conference in Tokyo October 28-29, 2022.
This second event features a panel of distinguished speakers who will address topics such as:
- Where are we today as Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the bigger picture of leadership at upper levels of our organizations and institutions?
- How do we rise above the model minority myth?
- What advice or secrets can we share with others regarding our own paths to leadership success?
- Key lessons learned (basic, intermediate and advanced levels).
Thanks to your feedback, we have extended this program to 90 minutes for a longer breakout time together. After the initial panel discussion and Q&A session, participants will move to small breakout groups that provide a more intimate setting for members to get to know each other better and further explore the topics discussed by the panel. Our goal is for the breakout groups to foster meaningful discussion and to have participants take away insights and ideas that are practical and actionable in their day-to-day lives.
As background, the overall objectives of this USJC Women+ Forum initiative is to provide a forum for USJC women and their allies to:
- Expand their networks across regions, country borders and demographics to build new relationships,
- Openly discuss issues and exchange information in a safe and supportive environment, and
- Enhance skills for professional career and leadership development.
This event is for Members only. Space is limited and will be on a first come, first served basis. Those on the waitlist will be notified when a space opens due to a cancellation. If your plans change and you are unable to attend the event, please cancel your registration so that we may accommodate those on the waiting list.
