We get asked a lot of questions; some more frequently than others.

Here are the answers to a few of them!

WHAT IS THE STORY BANK?

Our Story Bank is your safe space. This online repository is designed to archive the experiences and challenges Asian women are navigating in this lifetime, so that we may understand, assess, and address our steps to fulfillment and success.

We invite you to read and, if moved to, deposit a story or two.

ARE GUYS WELCOME AT YOUR EVENTS?

This is easily one of the most asked questions, and the answer is—absolutely! While the conversations we spark are wholly relevant to women, much of our work revolves around understanding how we can better communicate, empathize with, and support individuals regardless of gender. While the She Talks Asia Summit in March is in celebration of Women's Day, we have several male guests and speakers that contribute extensively to the dialogue about female issues. Our annual themed conferences in September, on the other hand, are designed to be executed from an entirely genderless lens. Everyone is welcome.

 

HOW DO WE KNOW WHEN THE NEXT CONFERENCE IS?

We make announcements about upcoming Summit and Conference dates and speakers via our social media platforms (which you can follow by clicking the icons in the top right bar of this site), or through our newsletter.

I LIVE IN EUROPE—HOW CAN I BE MORE INVOLVED IN THE SHE TALKS ASIA COMMUNITY?

There are a few ways to get involved from wherever you are on the globe! Contribute to our Story Bank, DM us empowering quotes or feature ideas on Instagram, or tune in to our monthly FB Live sessions and chime into the conversations there! You can also drop us a note and let us know what city you're in, so we can try to set up global talks in high demand areas. You are a pivotal part of our mission to create a borderless conversation!
