|Why a program for Asians?|
For a growing number of companies, particularly in the U.S., Asian and Asian American talent has been the fastest growing segment of the workforce in technical and managerial arenas.
Simultaneously, as companies look to Asia for future growth, those that successfully build an executive leadership pipeline from this growing pool of talent will be best positioned to innovate and grow globally.
Today, Asians are high contributors to U.S. and global business. The Asian consumer base has increased rapidly through the past decade and is projected to continue to increase. The Asian population
comprises 5% of the population and will triple in the next 50 years to 34 million in the US. This population is highly educated, technically skilled and affluent.
But with all this success, Asians have found it difficult to reach the highest levels of leadership in government, education and business outside Asia. The resulting gap in the executive pipeline represents an opportunity for companies that successfully address it.
The need for executive talent today and tomorrow is driven by the increased complexity of globalization, and no company will be able to address tomorrow's challenges if it cannot leverage this key constituent/ community in senior leadership roles.
