AAPI Womyn's Initiative
OCA's AAPI Womyn's Initiative started in 2016 as part of its effort to be more aware and inclusive of issues and challenges that AAPI womyn face. The initiative had its inaugural AAPI Womyn LeadHERship Summit in Washington, D.C., on November 3, 2016 to discuss how AAPI Womyn can uplift and support each other but also to discuss their collective civic power. It is our goal to bring this annual LeadHERship Summit to a different region of the country so we can continue to share and build new networks of AAPI womyn leaders.
Convene AAPI womyn from various regions, sectors, and careers and develop them to their highest potential
Sustain a framework to train and develop AAPI womyn leaders throughout the country
Develop a strong and uplifting network of AAPI womyn leaders
