Conference Series Design Features
The Conference Series is uniquely focused on Asian perspectives about career advancement in the U.S. The Series’ design is based on input from the NAAAP Boston community, who like their career learning experiences to be:
- In-depth — address the critical career topics, with meaningful exploration and discussion
- Actionable — prompt participants to not just listen but to take action and apply the lessons
- Inspirational — use panel discussion with role models who share real-world perspectives
- Engaging — provide interactive learning, with breakout sessions and networking opportunities
- Efficient scheduling — conduct the sessions on a Saturday when people are fresh and not being rushed
The series is targeted for Asian professionals, in all industries, professions and public sectors, who are serious about their career success. It’s especially valuable for working Asian professionals, individuals who have competence in their technical and core functional skill areas, who are ready to do more, and who want help in knowing how.
