Ascend is the premier national non-profit business organization dedicated to highlighting the presence and influence of Pan-Asian business professionals. The disproportionate shortage of Pan-Asian leaders at the highest levels of corporate America can be rectified – by dispelling cultural management myths and by helping corporations leverage their own AAPI diversity talent to regain US prominence. Ascend delivers national programs and conferences around career, professional and leadership development that build critical skills, effective mentoring and sustainable relationships. With experience levels ranging from university students to executive volunteers across many industries, Ascend members connect with role models and inspire mentees, giving back to maximize their success.
