Leadership Summit

Hosted by the University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri.

October 28th-29th, 2017

We chose the theme “Timeless” specifically for the Leadership Summit because we wanted a theme that encompasses what leaders are and what they can do in our community. We settled upon “Timeless” because we felt that...

  1. The work of a leader is timeless
  2. The impact leaders have on others is timeless.
  3. The fight for justice is timeless.

We believe that “Timeless” is a theme that can help guide and support aspiring leaders of all stages throughout their journeys of making change.

Overcome is a word filled with a personal sacrifice that tells the stories and experiences of millions. As Asian and Pacific Islander Americans, we are no different. Within overcome, we hold the stories of our own experiences, our parent’s experiences, and our culture’s experiences. Overcome is the metaphysical manifestation of our courage, our tenacity and our persistence at the obstacles that we face in our lives. It is the perseverance of self on which our survival is dependent. To each of us, overcome has a different meaning and a different a feeling, but it is a singular word that resonates deep within us. When we overcome, we are united. When we overcome, we begin thriving.
