Some of our workshops are for the new employee with workshops covering a variety of topics from: “How To Build A Better Resumé,” “Networking and Expanding Your Circle of Contacts,” “The Interview Process, What the Interviewer Is Asking You.”
Advanced workshops are more practical and may include “Vendor Negotiation,” “Public Speaking and Better Corporate Presentation,” “Diversity Is About You and Why It’s Important.” NAAAP will be presenting a slew of new and practical professional development workshops in year 2008.
Asian Americans as a group are quite successful in terms of education, financial gain, employment and material wealth but where we are weak are in our own communities.
Communities are shaped by the voices that are the most vocal, opinionated or the most eloquent. Your voice can be by what you say or do and when it is recognized, that ultimately leads to representation.
If you are an Asian American, you are a representative of the Asian American community in the eyes of everyone else. Assimilation does not mean the abandonment of your culture or your heritage, it means bringing your culture and heritage into what is mainstream America and building a community around it.
NAAAP, through its many volunteer and charity efforts, engages Asian Americans into the community.
