  • July 11, 2014 – Regional Whole Person Leadership Conference

    Portland, OR

    We are excited to bring the first ever one day regional event in Portland hosted by The Center for Asian Pacific American Women (The Center). The Center is a national organization dedicated to developing leadership and addressing the challenges for Asian Pacific American (APA) communities as whole person leaders.

    At its heart, our mission is to develop APA women to achieve success and fulfillment in their professional and personal lives so they can lead positive change in their workplace and communities. Achieving this goal requires devoting thoughtful and intentional effort using all aspects of a person: heart, mind, spirit, body, family and community. Our leadership curriculum has been developed to address all of these elements.

    We hope you can join us for this unique opportunity!

    Featuring key note speaker:

    Phyllis Campbell, Chairman, JPMorgan Chase Pacific Northwest
    And Carol Jue, Head Women’s Basketball Coach, Chapman University Panthers (NCAA champions)

    There will be opportunity for in-depth discussion and networking.

    Workshop topics include :

    • Maintaining your core: balancing the challenges of aging parents, kids, and the responsibilities of being an APA
    • Opening your mind: discovering your leadership potential
    • Your physical self: the intersection of mind, body and career through South Indian dance
    • It’s lonely being “one of the only” APAs. Minding your spirit and implementing self care

    This all day conference is OPEN TO EVERYONE in the community.
