Representation Matters: Empowering API Women for Civic Engagement

The number of women in government leadership positions is growing. They’re winning elections and getting appointments. They’re making tremendous contributions in their communities.

APAPA has assembled a panel of influential API leaders who will discuss their challenges and accomplishments while serving in different public service roles. They’ll share their vision of where they think opportunities are for API women and their own next steps. Get ready for an exciting morning of honest and open communications!

The API Women’s Leadership Conference commemorates Women’s Equality Day, which celebrates the certification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. constitution, giving women the right to vote.
