murali“AAPA gives you a Mentor and a platform for open communication with your mentor…. which is very hard to come by. It also provides you a great networking opportunity with professionals from various industries. The workshops and general sessions help you improve your leadership skills and identify and overcome typical ‘Asian traits’ which usually comes in the way of advancement of your career.”

We believe mentoring is the most effective method to deliver impactful results in leadership development and build a pipeline of future API leaders.
