Asian Pacific Americans (APA) make up over 6% of the total population in the U.S. but did you know that 75% of the Fortune 100 and 71% of the top 100 foundations have ZERO APA representation on their boards?
Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics (LEAP) is a national non-profit organization that is addressing this issue by developing APA leaders to fully take on leadership roles in Corporate America and non-profits. GAACC is proud to host LEAP President & CEO Linda Akutagawa in Austin.

Managers, do you have a multicultural team? The free early morning session will give you an understanding of the influence of your APA employees' culture and how to help them achieve their potential and impact your bottom line.
APA entrepreneurs and professionals, do you ever wonder why you are the way you are or if what you do could be due to your Asian cultural heritage? The morning session will explore how cultural values can be perceived by non APAs and how to manage these. This is followed by an afternoon workshop on how culture impacts your effectiveness in networking.
