NAAAP Profiles

The 31st annual NAAAP International Convention is coming to the beautiful city of Toronto from August 8 to 10.

As can be expected of any NAAAP event, the speaker lineup is chock full of smart, talented and extremely accomplished Asian Canadian and Asian American leaders in business.

You’ve read their bios and know their accomplishments front to back. But do you really know who’s behind that name and job title?

In true Schema fashion, we asked a handful of the inspiring speakers you can catch at this year’s convention to share some of their thoughts on pop culture, identity, current events and to give us their best professional tips and networking tricks.
