LEAP Asian and Pacific Islander Board Representation Reports

As part of our mission to inform society and empower communities, LEAP launched in 2009 a research initiative to assess the current API representation at the highest levels of leadership positions in various sectors of our society. The intent of this baseline research is to enable businesses, public institutions, as well as political, community and educational leaders to develop and implement strategies for sustainable growth and advocacy in this arena in order to highlight the need for further work in this area.

Through these reports and LEAP's direct involvement with companies and public institutions to develop a robust pipeline of API leaders through our training programs, LEAP will continue to do its part in shedding light on the need for more representation of APIs at the highest levels of leadership positions. 

Below is a summary of our most recent research findings.
