Reinventing Yourself at Any Age

Have you thought about leaving your secure job to follow your passions?  Do you value a new challenge over the career dictated by others? Perhaps there are opportunities you want to take advantage of but worry about the risk?  You are not alone! 

AWIB is featuring a group of ordinary women (like you and me) who have refused to be stuck in a place or career. They are a lawyer who became a handbag designer; an apparel industry executive who created a career around the needs of her child; a laid off manager who turned a family recipe into a must-have snack; a graphic designer who now sells premium cashews; and a lawyer turned media professional.   Inventing a new stage of your life is hard but possible and the results can be rewarding.  Join us for an interactive discussion with people who dared to take the risks to change their lives. 

A networking reception follows the discussion. We thank Rajbhog Foods – manufacturer of sweets, snacks, frozen appetizers, frozen entrees, beverages  and breads - for catering our event.

Chelsea Art Tour

Join Asian Women in Business as we go on a private Asian-themed gallery tour through the Chelsea art district. We will visit four galleries that are either owned by an Asian American or features Asian art, just enough to whet your interest in art and its impact on culture. Learn about trends in the art world, the up and coming artists, and art as a financial investment. We will be guided by an enthusiastic and renowned art advisor who has been intimately involved with the New York art world for over a decade. The evening will end with good cheer as we continue the conversation over wine and hors d'oeuvres.
