MOMENTUM Series: Heritage, Identity and Community
Naomi Story, Founding Board Member and Executive Director, National Asian Pacific Islander Council, is the guest speaker for this Social Sciences and Humanities MOMENTUM series event.

Naomi Okumura Story is a founding board member and executive director of the National Asian Pacific Islander Council. She comes to DeAnza College in celebration of the 2021 AAPI Heritage Month to discuss her work on mentoring and cultivating leaders in higher education. In this session, Story will speak about her journey and how this led to her passion and true understanding of how important it is to amplify heritage and identity, and to champion one’s influence and impact in any community. Furthermore, she will highlight and reflect on her role in NAPIC as she works to encourage, cultivate, engage and inform AAPI leaders in community colleges to be better advocate for policies, inclusivity and transformation.

This event is open to all faculty, students, staff and community members.

The MOMENTUM series is a talk continuum and the SSH dean’s platform to engage the division in profound practice of mindfulness and actionable conversation – to bridge the equity gap, protect inclusivity, amplify social justice reform and intentionally address structural racism in our classrooms, college and the community.
