For nearly 60 years, Asia Society has been the leading educational organization dedicated to promoting mutual understanding and strengthening partnerships among peoples, leaders and institutions of Asia and the United States in a global context. Across the fields of arts, business, culture, education, and policy, the Society provides insight, generates ideas, and promotes collaboration to address present challenges and create a shared future.


In 2007, Asia Society launched Global Talent Initiatives (GTI) to leverage its public voice in the area of global talent and diversity leadership. Asia Society is the unique global resource/platform to:
