The AWIB Corporate Initiative
AWIB's corporate initiative is designed to support corporate and professional Asian women. Hundreds of Asian women have thronged to our leadership forums to learn, ask questions, and network. Featured speakers represent the top minds from across corporate America, making it a quality experience for participants. We have partnered with various major corporations to bring our Born to Lead forum to you.
With over ten years' worth of forums, the event never fails to bring excitement and is always highly rated by all the participants. It is a welcomed addition to the programs geared towards the development of Asian women leaders.
AWIB Leadership Awards Gala
AWIB honors outstanding Asian women business owners and corporate executives for their success and leadership in the business world and role as champions in the community. Each year, a nationwide search for these leaders is made and an impressive and inspiring group of women are brought to public attention. Stay tuned for information on the next Leadership Awards Dinner.
The AWIB Scholarship Fund
The Asian Women in Business Scholarship encourages and promotes exceptional Asian female students who have demonstrated a strong commitment to scholarship, leadership, community service and/or entrepreneurship. Learn more about the Scholarship Fund, how to apply for the scholarship and review a list of prior award winners. If you have questions, please review the Frequently Asked Questions page for complete details on requirements, qualifications and the submission process. Due to the lack of funds, no scholarships will be awarded until further notice.

AWIB sponsors procurement opportunities conferences, which not only provide information on the processes, but also match pre-qualified minority and women-owned businesses with corporate buyers. This conference is an excellent way to meet government representatives and corporate buyers, in a unique environment that facilitates B2B networking. On an ongoing basis, AWIB receives requests for products and services from buyers and will notify members of these opportunities. While the conference is not an annual event, we do keep track of opportunities throughout the year.
