Young Professionals Group


Working as an arm of Asia Society Northern California, the ASNC Young Professionals was established with the specific goal of connecting a young, like-minded, Bay Area demographic in efforts to foster innovation and progress. The most prominent demographic in the city of San Francisco is young professionals ages 21 to 39, and the ASNC Young Professionals Group looks to involve these talented and globally-minded leaders in our initiatives.

Looking to build a strong foundation on which its members can develop professional relationships, networks, and ideas, the group caters its events to the aspiration and interests of young professionals through art exhibitions and performances, films, lectures, panel discussions, and conferences.
