Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with SASE!

This month, SASE brings a wide variety of opportunities for you to listen, connect, learn, and act as we work together to strengthen our API community and ourselves. All events are free to attend.


MAY 6 Generational Experiences of Bias, Stereotypes and Discrimination
We invite you to listen to real-life stories through the lens of 1st generation, 1.5, 2.0 and beyond – as it relates to bias, stereotypes, and discrimination in the workplace, from Asian professionals. Hear about the lessons learned, how the storytellers managed through these events and how it has shaped their career journey.
MAY 8 Dumpling 101
Celebrate APAHM with your #SASEfam and learn about making dumplings. We will have a chef take us on the journey of dumplings and end with a Q&A session. Prior to the event, we will send a list of items to prepare if you want to follow along.

MAY 13 Confident Allyship: Bystander Intervention 2.0
Conflict de-escalation is a more advanced curriculum that Hollaback teaches, and appropriately addresses personal action as opposed to bystander action. NAAAP's Self Care and Wellness team and Hollaback will facilitate a discussion of personal reflections on the growing wave of anti-Asian racist incidents and the tools and concepts of the Hollaback training.
MAY 20 HERSTORY: Strength from our Lived Experiences
We all have unique stories - the sum of our upbringing and our lived experiences. Join this live session to hear the remarkable journeys that 3 distinctive Asian leaders took in their careers. Beena Kavalam, Nozomi Morgan, and Hung Nguyen are professionals who parlayed successful corporate experiences into thriving careers as leadership development coaches.Their stories highlight the strength and lessons drawn from their experiences.

Beena, Nozomi, and Hung will also be leading sessions at SASE Pro’s upcoming Women’s Leadership Conference (June 11th.)

Join NAAAP, CAPAW, OCA, SASE, and APIAScholars as we learn from Forbes' 30 Under 30 Scientists and Time's Kid of the Year, Gitanjali Rao. She was recognized as America's Top Young Scientist and received an EPA Presidential award for inventing her device "Tethys"—an early lead detection tool. Gitanjali is also the inventor of “Epione”—a device for early diagnosis of prescription opioid addiction using genetic engineering, and "Kindly"—an anti-cyberbullying service using AI and Natural Language processing.
