Asian Professional Exchange and QR8 Group have joined forces to present the first ever, Asian Women Leaders in Entertainment speakers panel and networking event in Los Angeles to inspire and empower individuals who want to learn more about the Entertainment industry from Asian women pioneers. A panel of distinguished women will share their stories, trials and tribulations about their own unique journeys. There will also be a Q&A after the moderated session; followed by a networking mixer after the panel discussion.

The event is open to the public and at no cost, with a suggested $10 donation at the door benefiting Step Up.

Step Up believes all girls should have the opportunity to fulfill their potential. Through after-school and weekend mentorship programs, the nonprofit works with girls from under-resourced communities on becoming confident, college-bound, career-focused, and ready to join the next generation of professional women.
