Women at the Helm: Rising to the Challenge

The National Association for Asian American Professionals Philadelphia Chapter (NAAAP Philadelphia) will launch the Women in NAAAP (WIN) program at The Painted Bride Art Center. 


The launch event will include a panel discussion including prominent local Asian entrepreneurs and moderated by Cynthia Gouw, television journalist, entrepreneur, and actress . Panelists include:
• Jenny Chung, owner, JC Melrose Country Club
• Susanna Foo, owner, Susanna Foo Gourmet Kitchen
• Heseaung Ann Song, President/CEO, Mighty Engine ad Agency
• Carol Wong, Owner, Chinatown Learning Center
• Yin Long, Mass Mutual

The panel will share their elevator pitch, insights into building a thriving business, best practices for dealing with challenges, and visions for their business. With an estimated 620,300 firms owned by Asian American women in the U.S. as of 2013, collectively generating around $105 billion in revenue, it is increasingly relevant to join the conversations of Asian American women in the business world and building leadership.

Other initiatives planned for the program include workshops, peer-to-peer mentoring, professional speakers, dinner discussion series, and networking events.
