Asia Society’s Fifth Annual Diversity Leadership Forum (DLF) provides a vital platform for companies to explore how to develop Asian talent and gain a competitive edge in the U.S. and global marketplace. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the Asian Pacific American population increased 43 percent between 2000 and 2010 and rose at a faster rate than the U.S. population as a whole. During the same time period, the Asian Pacific American market grew 44 percent.

How is corporate America responding to the growing consumer power and workforce presence of Asian Pacific Americans? What initiatives are in place to develop Asian Pacific American leaders? How can global companies leverage Asian talent to compete in the emerging markets of China, India and elsewhere?

This forum is a must-attend event for executives and emerging leaders who understand that diversity and inclusion are critical to success. The program offers a U.S. track focused on developing Asian Pacific American leaders and a global track centered on managing workforces throughout Asia. The one-day forum will offer interactive workshops, a CEO roundtable, panel discussions and keynotes. The day culminates with the Annual Diversity Awards Ceremony, which recognizes companies that excel at developing Asian Pacific American leaders and embracing global diversity.

A limited number of tickets are available to the general public. For ticket inquiries please contact Penelope Dwyer at [email protected].
