AAPI Leadership in Action:

The news coverage on AAPI hate has decreased lately, but the violence and discrimination still persists. Recent studies show that the AAPI community has reported more than 9,081 incidents in roughly 15 months of the pandemic, with the number of incidents increasing from 6,603 to 9,081 during April—June 2021 alone.

Bias in the workforce has also shown that the ‘bamboo ceiling’ continues to present barriers to AAPIs; despite having the highest educational attainment, highest median income, and lowest unemployment rate of any racial or ethnic group in the United States, AAPIs are still underrepresented in leadership positions across industries in the US.  

Be part of a live discussion with AAPI professionals who will share their collective experiences and perspectives from their diverse career paths to discuss the importance of AAPI representation, authenticity and leading from wherever you are to create change in our industries. 



Join Women of the Vine & Spirits for a conversation with AAPI leaders from GPJ Experience Marketing and Moet Hennessy who will discuss:

  • Breaking down the AAPI ‘model minority monolith’ myth
  • Individuals’ and organizations’ responsibility to practice DEIB (diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging)
  • The importance of authentic representation, creating community and support from leadership
  • Action steps to keep the conversation going to create impact within your organization


Who Should Attend:

  • DE&I Professionals
  • HR/Talent Professionals
  • ERG/BRG Leads
  • Managers/Executives

Once you register you will receive an email with the link to access the session.  If you need further assistance please Contact Olivia Campbell, Membership Coordinator, Women of the Vine & Spirits.
