ASIA Leadership Conference
ASIA is launching a new program and would like to invite fearless
adult adoptees to our first International Adult Adoptee Leadership
Conference on June 2, 2012.
The purpose of this Korean Adult Adoptee Leadership Conference is
three fold: 1) Gather together to share our stories with others, 2)
learn more about our culture and ourselves as we strive to unleash all
of the inner resources we have been given, 3) begin to realize that we
are a powerful voice in our community and we will make significant
strides to helping others through our leadership.
This conference will be offered for free for first 25 adoptees (first
come, first serve) that are willing to give back at least 10 hours to
communities that they belong to. As part of the conference, we will
be offering personality tests and various activities that will allow
you to share your adoption experiences with other and find ways to
contribute to greater adoption communities.
Our guest speakers are Rev. Joshua Kim (a Korean adoptee, Seoul Korean
Baptist Church), Eunice Park-Lee (a Korean American, Chair of ASIA
board), Grace Song (ASIA Executive Director) and Margie Perscheid (an
adoptive parent, President of Korean Focus).
