Noy Lounnarath-Bozarth was born in Laos and emigrated to the United States with her family at the age of 12 as a refugee. As a parent, Noy hopes to pass on her pride of her Laotian culture and heritage to her children and the next Laotian American generation.
Noy is a Global Grants and Training Manager at The UPS Foundation. She is responsible for the local grants program – training and communicating The UPS Foundation’s signature programs, philanthropic focus areas, guidelines, and procedures. She has 20 years of UPS logistics experience, including her recent assignment to The UPS Foundation in July 2014. She has held many different managerial roles throughout her UPS career and has been a UPS ambassador on multiple internal and external leadership development initiatives.
Noy is currently President of the Asian Pacific American Council of Georgia (APAC), a non-profit organization with a mission of promoting unity for Asian Americans in the state of Georgia. APAC has members from 16 Asian countries, with LAS representing Laos.
Noy has been involved with the Laotian American Society (LAS) as Vice President and then President for the last 5 years. She has increased awareness of LAS’ mission and has expanded community outreach by approximately 80% in Georgia. She has also enabled national level visibility, helped to secure a LAS Lao Center, and led the effort to raise $25,000 during the annual fund program to support the LAS initiatives. She is very connected to the Metro Atlanta Asian American mainstream, and continues to support LAS by pushing for additional grants and sponsorships.
She is also a board member of Who’s Who in Asian American Communities (WWAAC). Noy was recognized as one of the 25 Most Influential Asian Americans in Georgia by the Georgia Asian Times in 2014 for her leadership as president of LAS and in 2015 for APAC.
Noy holds a Bachelor of Science in Management from Shorter University in Georgia.
On behalf of UPS, it is our honor to welcome you to the 2017 Who’s Who in the Asian American Communities (WWAAC) Alliance Conference. We are happy to host and continue to support an organization committed to serving the communities where we work and live in.
This year’s theme is Enhancing the Power of Personal and Professional Effectiveness – Through Personal Well-Being, Professional Savvy & Financial Security. The Conference will be interactive and designed to provide a new standard that you consider your own and at the same time, improve your business acumen. It will also be a networking opportunity that will enable attendees to share their professional backgrounds, business and personal objectives. It is our goal to provide an effective way to experience a number of different interactions to broaden perspectives.
We would like to extend our sincere thank you to the sponsors for your continued support and the generosity of the speakers, performers and volunteers in making this year’s WWAAC Conference possible.
