Discussions about leadership, even those centered on women, often overlook contributions made by Asian and Asian North American women. Now, Su Yon Pak and Jung Ha Kim share stories of Asian and Asian North American women who found their ways, sometimes circuitously, sometimes unexpectedly, into leadership roles.

Divided into three sections—“Remembering Wisdom,” Unsettling Wisdom,” and “Inciting Wisdom”—the book presents narratives of leadership experiences in the fields of social activism, parish ministry, teaching, U.S. Army chaplaincy, religious history, Christian denominational work, theology, nonprofit organization, theological social ethics, clinical spiritual care education in healthcare systems, and community organizing.

Leading Wisdom challenges conventional understanding through its creative reimagining of what it means to lead.

Su Yon Pakis the Senior Director and Associate Professor of Integrative and Field-Based Education at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. She is chair of the Professional Conduct Task Force of the American Academy of Religion and is on the board of Pacific Asian North American Asian Women in Theology and Ministry (PANAAWTM) and United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia.


Jung Ha Kim is a sociologist and Director of Undergraduate Studies at Georgia State University. She served as the first cochair of the Asian North American Religion and Culture Group at the American Academy of Religion and is the founder of the Asian American Community Research Institute at the Center for Pan Asian Community Services (CPACS).
