2016 Asian Pacific Americans in Higher Education National Conference, Oakland, CA

April 8, 2016

Pinay Power: Kaya Ko, Kaya Natin, Kaya Mo (I Can, We Can, You Can)

Filipina American voices can often get drowned out in the national dialogue for equity and inclusion where attention is mostly focused on the Black and Latina experience.  The Model Minority Myth also continues to reinforce the notion that Asian Pacific Americans are doing just fine, especially in higher education.  Being Filipina, however, comes with unique strengths and challenges, made even more complex when considering multiple, intersecting, and evolving identities.  Come experience the power of networking and collective storytelling with four Filipinas at different stages in their studies, career, and life.
