This May 2021, celebrate Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month with our Duke Asian Alumni Alliance (DAAA) by participating in our first-ever DAAA Symposium. This year’s theme, The Paths to Success, honors the achievements and distills the experiences of our diverse Duke Asian alumni community. With that in mind, we invite you to join us and our inspiring speakers as they share more about their journeys to success, including how they navigated industry-specific dynamics to become leaders in their fields and lessons they learned along the way.
