In Celebration of Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month 

The Asian Affinity Group and the New York Women's Network at White & Case LLP, the Asian American Bar Association of New York and the Asian American Law Fund of New York, Inc. invite you to join us for a screening of Kicking Glass: Two Decades and Counting.

Kicking Glass: Two Decades and Counting is a follow-up program to a video produced by White & Case that was first presented by AABANY at the 1995 NAPABA Convention. In the 1995 video, APA women lawyers discussed the hurdles they faced, the successes they achieved, and what success meant to them. In Kicking Glass: Two Decades and Counting, we revisit these important questions with an updated video and a panel discussion, featuring women from the 1995 video and a new group of women. Together, we examine whether APA women attorneys have finally broken the glass ceiling, identify what challenges remain, and explore real-world solutions for such challenges.

A panel discussion following the video will be moderated by Sylvia Chin, Partner of Counsel at White & Case. 

Panelists will include:

Hon. Pamela Chen, United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York

Hon. Doris Ling-Cohan, Appellate Term, First Department, Supreme Court of the State of New York

Sapna Palla, Partner, Wiggin and Dana LLP

Poojitha Rao, Principal, Rao Law LLC

Grace Shim, Executive Director, MinKwon Center for Community Action

Helen Wan, Author, The Partner Track

A cocktail reception will follow the discussion.
