Press Release 

Leadership Conference 2009-Thursday, October 22, 2009 Garden Grove, CA

GARDEN GROVE, Calif.---Over 200 people attended the highly successful 1st Leadership Conference, “Strength, Connect & Strategies for Success,” hosted by the Asian American Business Women Association (AABWA), Thursday October 22, 2009 at the Embassy Suites Hotel.

The event is known to be the largest gathering in Orange County which specifically focused on addressing support, education and business needs of Asian and Asian American women.

AABWA’s founder, Kim-Yen Huynh, said she was extremely gratified by the full turnout, but not surprised, given the unmet need for Asian American women to connect with each other.

“The leadership conference was just the beginning for us to share the many ways we can inspire ourselves and each other to take a leadership role in our communities,” said Huynh. “This conference is what we needed here in Orange County to continue to encourage Asian American women to celebrate their creativity and embrace risk!”

“Silent majority in the silent minority!”
The event’s keynote speaker was Holly Fujie, immediate past President of the State Bar of California. Fujie gave a spirited speech, encouraging her fellow Asian American women to forego the negative stereotypes of Asian women as passive and submissive. “Asian Americans are sometimes referred to as the Silent Minority, and Asian women are the silent minority within that majority, so we need to speak up and don’t be afraid to ask for what you want!”

For the full list of speakers and panelists and participating organizations, including the California State Asian & Pacific Islanders Affairs Commission, visit the AABWA website at www.asianamericanbuswomen.org.
