APA Women Leaders Breakfast


Top leaders provide solutions and insights on diversity

Asia Society Northern California’s inaugural APA Women Leaders Breakfast held the morning of the West Coast Diversity Leadership Forum (DLF), brings together leaders to provide insights on and solutions to closing parity gaps and building a sustainable workforce. 

The West Coast DLF builds on Asia Society’s multiyear Global Talent Initiatives. The full-day conference on Dec. 6 will focus on the impact of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs/BRGs) and diversity allies and serves to connect key stakeholders and highlight best practices.

As a neutral forum, Asia Society is the ideal convener to hold this discussion with top companies and thinkers in diversity. The Women Leaders Breakfast and DLF provide extensive networking and learning opportunities for companies and employees.
