Event description


QUESTION: Why is it that despite their strong work ethic, academic achievement, and extensive contributions to business, research indicated that few Pan-Asians have obtained senior leadership positions in global corporations?

Ascend, the largest, non-profit Pan-Asian organization for business professionals in North America has conducted extensive research to get answers to this question. 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 Global Filipino Network in partnership with the Cisco Filipino Professional Network and Ascend is inviting 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.

5:00 to 5:15pm : Welcome and Introductions by Cisco Filipino Professional Network
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
