Come join us for a unique Group Mentoring Session led by Steve Chung (Senior Vice President of News for NBCUniversal and AABANY Director) that is focused on breaking down abstract concepts like "leadership presence", "branding" and "networking" and translating them into concrete, actionable strategies that can help advance your career.

- Establishing a presence in meetings
- Becoming a better speaker
- How to ask for things in a comfortable and commanding way
- Avoiding common mistakes that Asians make in the workplace
- How to deal with unconscious presumptions/bias
- Using stereotypes to your advantage
- Making a workable plan for success—how to strategize and execute
- Networking in a more meaningful and natural way
