As you may have seen this week, Ascend Foundation released our research study, Hidden in Plain Sight: Asian American Leaders in Silicon Valley. We’ve received national and regional television, online and print media coverage from NBC News, L.A. Times, Fast Company, AP and SoCal Public Radio to name a few.

The study analyzes the leadership pipeline using employment data filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) by five major Silicon Valley-based companies. It reveals some surprising results including that the glass ceiling is 3.7x times harder for Asian Americans to crack. Our new Executive Parity Index (EPI) calculator tool will allow any company to determine their EPI score.
