ABOUT THE GIVING SUMMIT & WOMEN’S BREAKFAST
The Giving Summit will explore and celebrate giving in its myriad forms, including volunteering, philanthropy and social enterprise. It will bring together Asian American community trailblazers, experts and supporters with innovators in philanthropy and social impact and others seeking ways to make a difference, especially in the lives of the most vulnerable among us. Through a day of speaker sessions and interactive workshops, we will examine how our collective giving power can help create meaningful change.
This year’s Summit will also feature a Women’s Breakfast, Chaired by the Associate Board, which will take place in the morning, prior to the Summit Program. Please join us for this special opportunity to meet other giving women and to learn how they live their values through their professional work and through partnerships with organizations and individuals. Exemplary speakers will share their stories, and you’ll have time for table conversations with the other remarkable women in the room.
