Worklife Matters: Optimizing Your Environment & Mental Health

August 1, 2023 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT


To finally recognize our own invisibility is to finally be on the path toward visibility. Invisibility is not a natural state for anyone.

— Mitsuye Yamada, “Invisibility Is An Unnatural Disaster: Reflections of an Asian American Woman”

The question then becomes – where and how do we begin this journey of self-advocacy? We believe it starts with community.

WIN NAAAP-NY, ACE Next Gen, and Prime Produce invite you, our AAPI female professionals and allies, to join us for this special networking event featuring a powerful panel of experts in areas ranging from career coaching to vibrational health.
