Our vision is to inspire and support Asian American women as learners, leaders and contributors to local and global communities in the spirit of our founding Japanese American alumnae.
We believe that the values of connection, commitment, inclusion, and adaptability are foundational guideposts for JAWAUCB and its leadership in the fulfillment of our mission.
We are dedicated to building meaningful relationships that are characterized by trustworthiness, respect, and goodwill with the UC Berkeley campus community and its alumni.
We honor the courageous leadership of our JAWAUCB founders and strive to responsibly and actively uphold the rich legacy we have inherited from them. We recognize change in the academy and our communities, especially with respect to Japanese American, Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander women, and seek to address these changes through our organizational, educational, and outreach efforts.
We are committed to learning about and upholding values of diversity, equity, and access in our efforts, recognizing the need to address intergenerational, intragenerational, and multiracial issues that play significant roles in our Japanese American, Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander relationships and communities.
We face the current climate of change and challenges of the future with flexibility, courage, and creativity in order to achieve desirable outcomes that reflect our mission and goals
