With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Anita Fong, longtime PAAWBAC Board member and Woman Warrior, on December 5, 2016. She was hospitalized in August and succumbed to a rare disease. As Anita was always a fighter, her death came as a shock to her family and friends. We remember her as a fierce advocate for Asian Pacific Islander women, especially the younger women whom she enjoyed mentoring.
To honor Anita, PAAWBAC has established the Anita Fong Legacy Fund. Donations to this fund may be made as follows:

Network 2015 took place on June 4, 2015 at Nordstrom San Francisco Centre. The event featured four rising stars who dared to take their careers down less expected paths. The attendees enjoyed hearing their views and being inspired by their stories. Their passion was evident. We can’t wait to see what more these young women will achieve.
Proceeds raised from this event will be directed to the PAAWBAC Catalyst Fund.
