Diversity Leadership Forum
Asia Society's Diversity Leadership Forum will provide a vital platform to take the discussion of corporate diversity issues facing Asian Pacific American Professionals (APAs) to the next level. Asia Society is bringing together CEOs, senior leaders, and decision-makers from Fortune 500 companies to discuss best practices and cutting-edge issues related to leadership and career development; including managing a globally diverse workforce in the U.S. and Asia; cultural fluency; and promoting APA corporate leaders.
Exclusive Access to Asia Society's Diversity Report
The Forum will also include the disclosure of an independent report, the 2010 Asian Pacific Americans Corporate Survey. Working in conjunction with independent research firm, Questar Data Systems, Inc., Asia Society is conducting a national survey to understand corporate best practices in promoting and developing Asian Pacific Americans as leaders in the workforce and quantifying where they are positioned on the corporate leadership ladder in the US. A summary of the survey results featuring best practices and innovative ways on how to maximize leadership talent within a diversified workforce will be made available to Forum participants. A deep-dive comprehensive report, which will include industry comparisons and other analytics from the survey, will be made available to any interested corporation for a reasonable fee at and after the Forum.
