In 2006, PAAWBAC established the Monarch Leadership Awards to recognize emerging API women leaders who are carving out roles as leaders and envision new possibilities for themselves and those they advocate for. These young Monarchs carry on the legacy of leadership and re-imagine the new possibilities that will shape our future.
PAAWBAC honors the next generation of API women whose light shines brightly for others to see. Join us in celebrating their incredible journeys of leadership and inspiration.
Join us in celebrating the next generation of API women leaders and witness their journey as they recreate and redefine the role of women in our society.
We celebrate PAAWBAC’s 30th Anniversary and our founding members who, in 1980, imagined the boundless possibilities of Asian Pacific Islander women leadership if nurtured and promoted.
We are excited to honor five new Monarch Awardees who are Emerging API Women Leaders, taking the reins and building new opportunities for themselves, for those they advocate for, and their communities.
The first-ever PAAWBAC Monarch Awards were conceived to support and promote new leadership by identifying API women who are making waves and contributions at an early age.
