The Asian Women In Business Corporate Initiative



 AWIB launched its Corporate Initiative in June 2005 to meet the changing needs of corporate Asian women. AWIB has since held ten Corporate Asian Women's Leadership Forums to highlight the accomplishments of Asian women who have reached the top echelons of corporate America.  Their experience and insight is valuable to all Asian women as they navigate their own professional careers.  The forum is a unique networking opportunity as well as a mechanism for attendees to learn from some of the top minds in their fields. Asian women from across the corporate world have thronged to these filled to capacity forums.

The panel discussions delve into relevant issues concerning corporate Asian women including:

  • Making leadership and career progress while making a positive impact on the company's bottom line
  • Assessing one's professional strengths and weaknesses to forge beneficial workplace alliances
  • Counteracting workplace barriers and stereotypes that stall career progress
  • Leveraging one's firsthand knowledge of Asian culture as an asset in the global market

Born to Lead: Defining Success


How do you define success?  Is success the attainment of money, power, or honors ? 

Some say that success is defined by effectiveness, or balance or how much they love working or what they have done to make a difference.  For many, it is taking charge of their own paths.  Our panel of high powered Asian women executives were informative, inspirational, and humorous and spoke about what they learned from their failures, addressed some defining successes in their lives, and shared meaningful insights about making it in their respective companies.  

“Success is liking who you are, liking what you do, and liking how you do it”  Maya Angelou
