UC Berkeley to host seminar for young Armenians

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Armenian Students’ Association at the University of California, Berkeley has organized a one-day seminar called, “The Road to Home: Defining Success in the Diaspora” on Sunday, March 16, Asbarez reports.

The featured speakers hail from a host of backgrounds including Goldman Sachs, Google, and Human Rights Watch, among them Aram Ayazyan from Googlep; Vache Moroyan from BloomReach; Sarah Leah Whitson from Human Rights Watch; Christine Soussa from Symantec Corporation; Alex Saghatelian from Cisco Systems, Inc.; Adam Kablanian, the CEO of PlasmaSi; Kevin Minissian, the CEO of Norchem Corporation; and Kim Bardakian from Visit Oakland.

The speaker panel will be focused on discussing the role that young Armenian diasporans should play. The panelists will touch on how their cultural heritage influenced their success in the United States and how that success redounds to the benefit of Armenia. Most important, the panelists will share how that success can be replicated for a younger generation of Armenian Americans.

The event is composed of three parts. First, the audience will hear from each speaker individually then the first speaker panel will convene, followed by a brief intermission. The second speaker panel will be followed by a question and answer session. Both speaker panels will be moderated by Professor Stephan Astourian of the UC Berkeley Armenian Studies Program.

“We are excited to offer this unique opportunity, for the first time ever, to students and community members alike, interested in spending an evening with different generations of Armenians in our local Bay Area and from around the globe,” Berkeley ASA member David Mkrtchian, an organizer of the event.
