Leaders on Leadership

A Series for Young Professionals
Gordon Quan.

The Leaders on Leadership series comprises monthly interactive conversations with established local leaders. The series focus reflects Asia Society’s five program areas: business, policy, education, arts, and culture.

The goal is to connect professionals aged 40 and under with dynamic leaders from the greater Houston area for the purposes of networking and engaging in dialogue on key issues that reflect Asia Society Texas Center’s mission. Surrounding each event is the Texas Center's monthly mixer, beginning at 5:30 pm. Click here for more information on the November Leo Bar.
