Video from the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders

Dear Affiliate Presidents,

I want to share a fantastic video from the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders regarding career advice and suggestions from APA government leaders, many of whom are NAPABA members. APABA-DC President Smeeta Ramarathnam mentioned this video to many of you at the Convention, and I want to thank her sharing it with us. The speakers (including Smeeta) raise important issues such as how to deal with career adversity and the importance of advocating for oneself. I encourage you to watch the video and share it with your networks.
