2009 Corporate Asian Women's Leadership Forum

Born to Lead: Creating Possibilities

June 17, 2009

AWIB's Fifth Annual Corporate Asian Women's Leadership Conference - Born to Lead: Creating Possibilities was held on June 17, 2009 at Goldman Sachs in Manhattan. 

The evening was an engaging experience for attendees, starting off with a reception where they networked with corporate women from a wide range of industries.  This was immediately followed by an insightful panel discussion from a dynamic group of Asian women corporate executives.  The frank dialogue covered the opportunities, challenges and major issues facing Asian women in the corporate world.  These Asian women trailblazers shared personal stories and important lessons learned that ultimately shaped their paths to success. Alice Cho, has done an excellent job of guiding the conversation and has been our moderator of choice for three consecutive years.
