The IgniteNextGen Summer Series is a career-focused leadership webinar series intended to help young Asian Americans across the country learn professional skills that will prepare them for the following years and help them to think strategically about their career.
In the wake of COVID-19, college students and recent graduates have found themselves with school closures and canceled summer opportunities. In response, we’ve curated a Summer Series to work with students/recent graduates to develop skills that will help them to be successful in their careers and life. We want to invite young professionals to a transformative experience and spark a fire of hope into their careers and life!
We believe leadership-building starts with identity-building.
Being confident in who we are reflects in how we interact with others. That is why we brought in award-winning author Dr. Stephanie Han to help young professionals explore identity. In our Summer Series Session 1, Dr. Stephanie Han engaged young leaders in an overview lecture of 20th/21st century Korean American literature and its main themes of nation, family, memory, and race.
