Leadership Development Program (LDP)

The Leadership Development Program (LDP) is an integrated experiential curriculum designed to explore the opportunities and challenges of the workplace from an Asian and Asian American cultural lens and helps participants develop their own paths to leadership positions. It is designed for Asian and Asian American employees of leading global corporations in first-second line management positions. 

Unlike traditional executive education programs, the intensive, interactive five-day program Leadership Development Program is tailored specifically with the needs of Asian and Asian American leaders in mind. It helps participants realize differences between Asian and American business culture and helps them bridge the gap while retaining their Asian values. Asian and Asian American employees will come out of the program with the understanding, self-confidence and tools to take action and determine their own route to professional and leadership success.

Since 1989, more than 125 corporations have sent over 2,500 participants to this innovative program. The program is held annually in Los Angeles or New York, NY.
