Council of Korean Americans
2019 Empower Summit
For the past five years, the Council of Korean Americans (CKA) have assembled top Korean American thought leaders, opinion-makers, and innovators across the country to discuss important issues that shape our society, from the future of Korean American women’s leadership to security in the Korean Peninsula.
This year, we will explore not only critical issues, but also examine leaders themselves and the Korean American communities that shape them. The Empower Summit will equip emerging and seasoned leaders with tools and tactical ideas to succeed in their fields. The summit is designed to promote “how to” discussions, connect diverse groups of leaders, and inspire our community toward greater impact.
Registration is now open, with Early Bird pricing available up until September 1, 2019.
