The idea for Bamboo Bridges began in 2008 when a group of passionate, committed professional women gathered to share their vision for a community that celebrates the accomplishments and contributions of APA women, while also recognizing the unique social, legal, and economic justice issue that APA women are confronted with due in large part to social cultural challenges and barriers.
