Promoting Leadership in Business - By Howard Feintuch
From College Through Professional Career
Ascend and ALPFA are two organizations that work to promote
leadership skills among their members. Ascend members are Pan-Asians
while ALPFA members are Latino. Both organizations begin the process of
developing leadership skills at the college level with student chapters.
When the students graduate from college, the goal is for them to join a
professional chapter where they can continue to further develop their
leadership skills and share their knowledge with younger members as they
advance in their careers. Both organizations seek to service their
members for the entire length of their careers. In this way, both
Ascend and ALPFA nurture the initial development of career-oriented
social networks and support that networking during the working
professional lives of their respective members.
