Ask An Asian Again

Many times, even among Asians, there are misconceptions and stereotypes about what it means to be Asian.

The National Association of Asian American Professionals along with SoFlo Asians, Asian American Advisory Board - Miami Dade County, and Chopsticks House are inviting all local south Floridians to learn more about Asian professionals' points of views on issues throughout our region. Come and listen to us share what are our challenges are and how we overcome them. The panelists will hold different professions and be from various parts of Asia. We welcome questions from the participants and hope that the discussions create an understanding that bridges diversity and compassion for inclusion.
