The one-day event features Dr. Marjorie Kagawa-Singer, professor at UCLA School of Public Health and Asian American Studies Center, as keynote speaker. She will discuss choices and often conflicting demands of life, career, family and the impact health and well-being.

CAPAW’s signature “Whole Person Leadership” approach, developing women to achieve success and fulfillment in their personal and professional lives will be presented by the center’s program director, Peggy Nagae.

“This seminar is designed to challenge and inspire attendees to create positive change in their lives and communities,” said Nagae.

Linda Yamauchi, seminar chair and center board member, added, “We’ve created a mix of multi-generational panels featuring Millennials, Gen-Xers, and Baby Boomers who will share their unique insights from their vantage points on ‘Work Life Balance’ and ‘Giving Back to the Community.’ It promises to be a day filled with stories and new insights of how women are making choices and managing change in their lives.”

This full-day seminar is open to the public and will be held at Pasadena City College, 1570 E. Colorado Blvd. Sponsors include State Farm, Nordstrom, Southwest Airlines, and Edison International.
