Ascend, the largest, non-profit Pan-Asian organization for business professionals in North America, conducted extensive research into the realities of the model minority and found that despite their strong work ethic, academic achievement, and extensive contributions to business, few Pan-Asians have obtained  senior leadership positions in global corporations. In fact, we call this “the curse of the model minority.” Ascend has collected statistics and interviewed numerous Pan-Asian executives on why this phenomenon exists.  

The Cisco Filipino Professional Network, Ascend, and The Global Filipino Network invite you to attend this free interactive webinar as we discuss the Top Myths of Asian Leadership, understand if they are real or not, and learn what Pan-Asians can do to overcome these myths.

5:15 to 6:30pm:  The Myth of Asian Leadership – presented by Ascend
6:30 to 7:15pm:  "High Potential" Q&A – moderated by Ascend
