What We Do – CAPAW in Action
Join Our Sisterhood
For over 20 years, the Center has provided a variety of professional development programs –including our unique APAWLI Leadership Program -- to address the specific needs of AAPI women across the country. Our vision is to develop ethical and compassionate AAPI women to take leadership roles in the private and public sectors.
Since 1996, over 150 AAPI women have graduated from the APAWLI Program. These #APAWLI fellows have gone on to make a significant impact in their communities, within their professions, and across the country. In May 2017, The Center conducted a survey to find out where these fellows are today, and how the APAWLI Program shaped their experiences and opened up leadership opportunities.
