B3: Build, Breakthrough, and Believe

“A Professional and Leadership Development Workshop for Students and Young Professionals”

Learn the tactics and tools necessary to win in today's professional arena
Walk away with winning strategies and best practices from some of today's most successful professionals
Meet other aspiring young professionals and students that will expand your network

Launched in 2009 by Organization of Chinese in America,  B3: Build, Breakthrough & Believe is a professional and leadership development program for aspiring Asian Pacific American (APA) professionals interested in taking their personal, scholastic and professional goals to the next level through leadership development and networking.

The goal of this program is to provide relevant professional development, peer networking and mentoring to aspiring Asian American professionals. Build, Breakthrough, Believe is the three-word mantra of the B3 program and are used as building blocks for the event agenda. Workshops and seminar topics range from personal branding to corporate success tactics and strategies.

"After attending B3, I experienced my immediate change of attitude. I feel more confident when expressing my opinion to my superiors and being extra prepared to meetings. Also, I am now actively seeking a mentor and my own 'personal board of directors'."

" I honestly came in with no prior knowledge of OCA and just wanting to see Wong Fu Productions, but now I'm so glad I went (to B3). It was inspirational and informative, and I actually want to intern for OCA here in DC."

"The B3 event was life-changing for me. The workshop and one-one-one discussions are what I needed at this period in my career with my professional development."
