Asian American Leaders Network

Welcome to the Asian American Leaders Network!


Welcome to the Asian American Leaders Network on LinkedIn!

Asian Americans are America's MOST educated group -- and the LEAST likely to get promoted.

It's a chicken-and-egg scenario. We need insider guidance to get to the top, but since so few of us have gotten to the top, it's hard to find mentors.

I've been so lucky to have gotten to the top, of three different careers on three different continents. Now, my mission is to expand access to opportunities for Asian Americans at ALL levels of business and society.

That's why I started this group. Inside, each week, I give you a livestream training and other resources to help you smash the glass ceiling.  

Our group is also a warm and safe place for us to hang out, be ourselves, exchange ideas, network and swap resources.

It's 100% free. 

With this network, I plan to nurture a whole community of great American leaders.

Will you be among them? I hope so!
