Join us for the inaugural API Summit hosted by The Asian Pacific Islander (API) Initiative. This event aims to showcase the inspiring journeys and accomplishments of API leaders who are boldly breaking barriers and using their voices to drive meaningful change.
The summit will provide a dynamic and thought-provoking exploration of the challenges faced by API leaders and the resilience they exhibit in overcoming obstacles. From business and technology to arts and activism, distinguished speakers will share their personal narratives, shedding light on the diverse ways in which they have paved the way for progress within their respective fields.
This summit is not only an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of API leaders but also a platform to engage in meaningful discussions, exchange ideas, and foster meaningful connections.
