SIS Productions, an all-volunteer company created to provide leadership opportunities and decision-making roles for Asian American women, is launching a campaign to Celebrate Women through all the work that we do – on stage, behind the scenes, and in the community. SIS hopes to inspire people of all genders, ages and races to re-imagine how women are valued in our culture. Envision what might be possible if women are appreciated for their accomplishments over their looks, size or weight. Where young girls are taught to reach their full-potential. Where women past a certain age are sought after for their wisdom and advice rather than fading into invisibility.

CONVERSATION: Kathy Hsieh will share from her years of experience in the grant and producing world how to do a true self evaluation of what your skills are so you can feel confident as you apply for opportunities. We’ll discuss how to find joy through the process of applying and how to seize an application process as an opportunity to create a work plan that will benefit you whether you receive funding or not. It’s all about your mindset. She’ll also share insight about what to expect throughout and after the process. A joy-filled conversation to help you discern what might be the right path for you.
PRACTICAL: Representing yourself and your craft in ways that feel authentic and empowering on paper can be difficult. Sara Porkalob will lead us through this workshop that will use immersive storytelling exercises to mine individual experience, objectives, and tactics to develop personalized, specific language that you can use for grant writing, cover letters, artistic statements, and other such documents. Being aware of what you need to flourish and being ready to receive with open us to our full potential to thrive and grow.
If you’d like to get email updates about the campaign including special event info, discount opportunities, and chances to honor the women in your life, we invite you to sign up.
