Mission

naisA Global was founded with a mission to educate and empower the next generation of Asian leaders in the US and around the world by providing them with mentorship opportunities, leadership training and tool to foster and develop effective business communication skills.

50% of the Silicon Valley Work force is Asian. 25% of Ivy League students are Asian. Yet, less than 2% of fortune 500 CEOs are Asian. Our programs are a response to the critical lack of Asian leadership that exists nationally and globally. It is the only nonprofit of its kind to provide a global platform to talented aspiring professionals of Asian descent

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

IMF estimates that by 2030, Asia's share of the world GDP will reach more than 40%. This means that businesses will need high caliber Asian leadership to drive their growth. People who possess the necessary skills, behavior and personality critical to great leadership are paramount to a thriving economy. The challenge facing this global market is a serious shortage within the Asian leadership pool.
Asian students consistently demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, and land careers at some of the best companies around the world. In fact, 25% of Ivy League students are Asian, and Asians represent 50% of the workforce in Silicon Valley. Despite these accomplishments, the number of Asians occupying leadership positions in America is disproportionately low, with only: 2% of Fortune 500 CEOs; 2% of college presidents;Less than 1% of board members; Around 0.3 of corporate officers.
On a global scale, the rate of Asians in significant leadership roles is even lower.
