Greater Washington invites you to our
Pacific American Heritage Month Celebration
Pacific American Heritage Month is celebrated in May to commemorate the
contributions of people of Asian and Pacific Islander descent in the United
States. According to the 2000 Census
Bureau, the Asian-American community is the fastest growing group in the DC
Metro Area. Over the last decade, the number of Asians who have relocated to
the DC area has increased by approximately 30 percent.
Greater Washington Chapter for an evening of networking, professional
development, and a celebration of heritage!
our continuing professional development, Wesley Hom,
National Ascend Board Member and Former IBM VP & Managing Director, will be
joining us to talk about the "Myths of Asian leadership.” He
will discuss how these common Asian cultural barriers and expectations have
limited Pan-Asians’ opportunities to reach the "C”-suite and other high
levels of management.
Come learn what you can do to overcome these myths,
limitations or excuses; and why "Managing Up” and managing your leadership
team is so important to your careers.
We are also excited to have a live
hula performance, a traditional Hawaiian dance.
Nothing represents the diversity and richness of culture than the
beautiful swaying and dance movements of this graceful art form. Aloooha!Appetizers
