Apac's 2nd Annual Asian American Conference: Breakthrough Metamorphosis says

Welcome to APAC's 2ND annual Asian American Conference! The Breakthrough Conference is a one-day conference targeted towards Asian American students at UT who want to learn more about their role in society and the impact they can have on campus and beyond. This year, the conference is co-hosted by the Asian Desi Pacific Islander American Collective (APAC), the Center for Asian American Studies (CAAS), and the Asian Americans for Fine Arts and Humanities (AAFAH).

This year's theme for Breakthrough is "Metamorphosis." Metamorphosis is a marked change in character or function. Our focus for this conference is for students to challenge themselves to go through personal transformation, development, and growth--- either by learning how to appreciate their identity, shifting from limiting beliefs, or deciding to live out their values. By transforming our thinking, we can BREAKTHROUGH barriers and make an impact in the world.

Attendees will explore Asian American issues, develop professional skills, and learn about cross-identity and cross-race relations through workshops. Discussion and debate of these issues are facilitated by keynote speakers and workshops.

Our workshops cover topics, such as:

❇Asian Americans and Nutrition
❇Asian Beauty: Redefined
❇Understanding Personal Narratives and Asian American Mental Health
❇Great Expectations: Exploring Family Dynamics Among Asian Americans
❇Asian American in Media
❇ Solidaritiy and Anti-Blackness in Our Communities
❇South Asian Diasporic Identities and Histories
❇Interrupting Rape Culture
❇Leadership development

Our mission for this conference is to empower individuals in the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) community to act as agents of social change and create a cohesive network of leaders who will strive to work towards creating a voice in the APIDA community.
