Our Women’s History Month Celebration Series with Asian American woman owned and designed clothing brand, M.M.LaFleur, was one for the books! Every city celebrated in its own unique way, and we were delighted to welcome many new faces. Our Chicago chapter enjoyed an evening of thoughtfully prompted networking; New York sat down for an inspiring peek behind the brand with M.M.LaFleur’s founder, Sarah LaFleur; and Boston celebrated with treats from Flour Bakery while we spoke with local celebrity, and James Beard Award winning chef, Joanne Chang. We hope you left these events feeling motivated, connected, and celebrated! We look forward to seeing you in your M.M.LaFleur at an upcoming AAAIM Event!

Thank you to our sponsors, GCM Grosvenor (Chicago) and One Rock Capital (New York City), and our AAAIM NOW leadership committee.
