About Us

Founded in 2006, the Vietnamese American Professional Women Association of Silicon Valley (VAPW) is dedicated to professional and personal growth for Vietnamese American women of all ages and backgrounds. Our vision is to build a strong support network for one another and strengthen our community ties.

In addition, VAPW seeks to affect positive changes through the support and mentorship of young women to enter diverse professional careers (including STEM or Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics careers). We encourage community responsibility and participation and welcome all those who support our mission to participate in our events and to join our organization.

VAPW members will commit themselves to the highest standards of ethics and professional conduct. The VAPW accomplishes its mission through a variety of activities including guest speaker luncheon series, educational forums, scholarship programs, mentorship programs and participation in other community events.

VAPW, a 501(c)(3) organization, is non-partisan and does not make political endorsements.
