Founded in 2003, AAPA continues to provide a year-long program that consists of workshops and experiences to enhance management and leadership skills. In addition to the workshops, we have a very successful mentoring program and host various networking opportunities, where we also invite other influential Asian American leaders to share their career experiences. We would like you to consider AAPA as an opportunity for you or your company’s employees to get involved to help expand the Asian American management pipeline.
AAPA’s mentoring program has positively impacted my life by providing a strong and supportive atmosphere where I can learn from executives, managers, and associates from established and reputable companies. The mentoring program added value to my life by providing a personal and interactive relationship with my mentor
