What is Asian Women in Business?

Connect, experience and enjoy. Asian Women In Business stretches beyond the usual meet-and-greet. Though AWIB’s primary purpose is to support Asian professional women through forums and fundraising, the group often includes non-members and spouses at its meet-ups. Events include test-driving Teslas, a daring Suntory whisky and French cheese pairing and an upcoming, colorful Diwali Day event at Bloomingdales.
