The Professional Development Committee (PDC) is focused on helping individuals develop necessary skills for career advancement and leadership development through action-learning workshops, seminars, and conferences. We celebrate being an Asian American leader by creating spaces through mediums that can get conversations started and give Asian Americans more visibility, support, and the tools they need to break the bamboo ceiling. Our annual conference, AccelerASIAN, was awarded the Program of Year by NAAAP National in 2018. During the pandemic, we created a pamphlet about the diversity in Asian American cultures to help people see the cultural nuances that make up Asian American culture in Boston. We hope to kick off some great new initiatives and to continue our roundtables in the new year.
