Oct 03, 2019


Still on the fence about coming to CKA’s Empower Summit?

Here are 5 reasons you need to register TODAY:

1) Meet trailblazers who are doing amazing things across the globe.

With over 70 speakers to be featured in plenaries, workshops, and receptions, the Empower Summit will provide unprecedented access to high-level Korean American leaders across industries and sectors. Meet leaders in finance, humanitarian work, business, sports, law, public policy, and the arts. Plenary speakers include Georgia State Representative Sam Park, Kinzie Capital Partners’ Suzanne Yoon, Dean of UC Irvine Law School L. Song Richardson, Jung Woo Sung of Hanwha Asset Management, National Basketball Champion Coach Steve Baik, and many more.

Check out our speaker list here for more details. 

2) Get practical tips and career advice from the best.

Our workshops on Saturday, November 2 will be capped at 30 people to ensure ample time for back-and-forth with our distinguished speakers. Want to know how to start a business? How to publish an op-ed in the Washington Post? How Korean Americans are leading and reshaping the financial sector? There will be plenty of things and time for you to dive into in our 18 unique workshops. 

Check out the program schedule here for details. 

3) Discuss critical Korean American issues and get inspired.

Our speakers and program represent diverse experiences and interests within our community. Discuss with other participants on how to care for Korean American elderly, how to get more young people to run for office and how the Korean American identity informs public service. Join us for frank discussions on mental health and how we can support one another to reach our fullest potential.  

4) Network, network network.

One of the feedback that we’ve received from past national summits is that our speakers seem to come and go without sticking around for participants to chat one-on-one. At Empower Summit, there will be plenty of time to mingle with inspiring speakers and CKA leaders, whether it's at our Opening Reception & Dinner on Friday (Nov 1), Networking Lunch on Saturday (Nov 2), or at the Closing Reception at FiscalNote on Saturday evening. So bring those business cards!

5) Realize you are not alone in your leadership journey.

Over 300 professionals and emerging leaders will be coming together with the sole purpose to connect, help and learn from each other. It will be a transformative experience, and a powerful reminder that we can lift each other up as we navigate our personal leadership journey.


We are near capacity on Friday's Opening Reception & Dinner, so please register soon.

Thank you and see you all there!
