Each year, LEAP celebrates Asian and Pacific Islander leadership at the LEAP Leadership Awards Celebration.

With over 500 attendees from across the country, this event brings together top leadership from the corporate, nonprofit, higher education, and public sectors to celebrate Asian and Pacific Islander leaders and organizations. As LEAP’s only fundraiser, this event raises funds that will support LEAP’s work. Serving over 3,000 Asian and Pacific Islanders each year, LEAP challenges individuals to Uncap Talent® and prepare for leadership opportunities in the spaces they work, live, and play.

 

 

Prior to the Celebration, there will be two NEW events.

 

LEAP Executive Luncheon

An invitation only opportunity for LEAP’s major sponsors to meet the LEAP Board and the 2018 Leadership Award honorees.

LEAP Leadership Bootcamp

An opportunity for Celebration ticket holders to get a taste of LEAP's programs and workshops.
