Asian Women In Business (AWIB) has an excellent multidimensional approach to helping small business owners. I found the procurement conference to be fascinating; I had the opportunity to experience up-close the dynamic conversations between small business owners and company representatives. In addition,I have learned a great deal from AWIB's workshops. AWIB hosts a wide variety of workshops such as Effective Business Writing, Networking, Trademark, Copyright & Patent Basics, Social Media, and Starting Your Business 101. Furthermore, AWIB organizes networking events that are fun and helpful. AWIB does an excellent job at meeting new people, bridging connections and helping its members foster important working partnerships.

I have volunteered with Asian Women in Business for nearly 3 years now. I believe that I will have a life-long connection to AWIB. The leadership and networking workshops have enabled me to develop a great perspective on my leadership style.

This is the only organization I know of that serves such a broad range of creative women and the variety areas in which one finds Asian women entrepreneurs is enormous and AWIB has played a key role in fostering many, many of these women

I recently helped out with 2 events. 1. Public speaking event where participants garnered public speaking tools to utilize to enhance presentation styles and effectively communicate with peers, colleagues and supervisors. 2. Procurement conference - an annual conference which included panel discussions regarding how to procure M/WBE certification, winning government contracts, etc. It also included private matchmaking sessions with corporate buyers and information exchange from government and private exhibitors.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching Asian women gain the skills to make them competitive as entrepreneurs and as women climbing up the corporate ladder. It is a great resource for networking and meeting other inspirational women.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the opportunities to see immediate results from your work - meaning the smile on a woman's face after she performs a great public presentation after attending one of Asian Women In Business's public speaking seminar.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very courteous, gracious, knowledgeable, and kind. They are always smiling! They promptly respond to queries. They truly believe in the organization and their excitement trickles down to the members.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open chapters across the country helping Asian women small business owners and business and corporate woman everywhere. Currently the resources limit this because of the necessary staffing needs to oversee such.
