Ascend Greater Washington invites you to our

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Celebration

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month is celebrated in May to commemorate the contributions of people of Asian and Pacific Islander descent in the United States. According to the 2000 Census Bureau, the Asian-American community is the fastest growing group in the DC Metro Area. Over the last decade, the number of Asians who have relocated to the DC area has increased by approximately 30 percent.

Join the Greater Washington Chapter for an evening of networking, professional development, and a celebration of heritage!

To support our continuing professional development, Wesley Hom, National Ascend Board Member and Former IBM VP & Managing Director, will be joining us to talk about the "Myths of Asian leadership.” He will discuss how these common Asian cultural barriers and expectations have limited Pan-Asians’ opportunities to reach the "C”-suite and other high levels of management.

Come learn what you can do to overcome these myths, limitations or excuses; and why "Managing Up” and managing your leadership team is so important to your careers.

We are also excited to have a live hula performance, a traditional Hawaiian dance. Nothing represents the diversity and richness of culture than the beautiful swaying and dance movements of this graceful art form. Aloooha!

Appetizers will be served. Cash bar will be available.
