In Partnership with Oracle Professional Asian Leadership (OPAL)

Proceeds benefit the Very Asian Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to shine a light on Asian experiences through advocacy and celebration.

No matter what field you work or volunteer in, there is a lot of  value in being able to tell a story and present your ideas concisely and effectively. As a community, the more we create spaces to share, the more we can grow in our own voices and the collective of our community voices.           

Hear from a local journalist Gia Vang on how to pitch your ideas effectively and practice the art of storytelling in a low pressure, fun environment of peers.
