Ascend and AAPA would like to invite you to join us at our upcoming 2-day session of Executive Insight Series for Women (EIW). Ascend created The Executive Insight for Pan-Asian Women (EIW) program to help mid-level Pan-Asian female managers address common challenges as they rise within their respective organizations in corporate America.


  • Executive values and leadership skills demanded by large North American corporations
  • The role of cultural heritage and how it may help or hinder their effectiveness
  • Dealing with stereotypes about Pan-Asian women
  • Developing “executive presence” skills, including impactful communications
  • How Pan-Asian women can navigate sensitive issues in relationships with mentors and sponsors
  • Being more comfortable with participating in informal cross-cultural groups in the workplace
  • Handling work-life balance challenges

Pan-Asian female executives who encountered and overcame many of these issues in their careers instruct this program. These executives will share their experiences, lessons learned, and personal insight along with their own career journeys.

Ascend designed the program to be interactive, with mini-lectures, discussions, and role-play exercises. Participants should expect to leave with a heightened awareness of the choices and skills they will need to develop and demonstrate to be more effective and successful in their unique career journeys.
