GYBO Livestream: Open for Business

Held in partnership with Google’s Get Your Business Online (GYBO) program, AWIB hosted another Livestream workshop at our office. Attendees heard from the Small Business Administration, Square, Google, Facebook, and Constant Contact and learned how to optimize their businesses for the increasingly digital population of shoppers. In an age where 40% of online transactions are conducted through a mobile platform, the small business owners in attendance eagerly noted down the strategic approaches offered by the digital experts. Upon conclusion of the livestream, attendees discussed all that they had learned, and how they plan to incorporate these lessons in their respective business models moving forward.

We thank Google, the Small Business Administration, Facebook, Constant Contact, and Square for the illuminating livestream.

Lunar New Year Reception at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

AWIB members were invited to attend the highly-anticipated Lunar New Year Reception at the Met, which featured a private viewing of the exhibit Streams and Mountain without End: Landscape Traditions of China. The exhibit focused on the many uses of landscape in the Chinese visual arts and showcased more than 120 Chinese landscape paintings, in addition to textiles, ceramics, bamboo carvings, and objects in other materials. 1,000 guests enjoyed savory Asian hors d’oeuvres in the magnificent Temple of Dendur while a breathtaking dragon dance was performed to welcome the Year of the Dog. AWIB President, Bonnie Wong, a part of the Met’s Multicultural Audience Development Initiative, made it possible for AWIB members and supporters to be a part of the Met celebration of Lunar New Year.

AWIB Winter Open House

It was cold outside, but members and supporters were happy to stay warm in our office for the AWIB Winter Open House, our first event for 2018! The air was buzzing with conversations amongst attendees as they networked the evening away over wine and lite bites. As always, everyone was excited to reconnect with old friends and make new connections, and newcomers were thrilled to become better acquainted with the AWIB community. Yu, an AWIB member, met Karen at our last open house and that connection led to a job offer for her! Although that may not happen for everyone, the positive effects of networking can never be underestimated.  

Thank you to all who joined us – see you soon!

Please see the event invitation and photos.
