LEAP Celebrates 20 Years of Growing Leaders

New LEAP Report - 2009 APA Representation on Fortune 100 Boards 

2009 APA Representation on Fortune 100 Boards

As part of our long-term strategy on research of Asian Pacific American (APA) representation in top leadership roles, LEAP’s 2009 APA Representation on Fortune 100 Boards marks the first of a series of reports measuring the inclusion at the highest levels of the American workplace including public, private, foundation, education and nonprofit sectors.
 
LEAP’s 2009 APA Representation on Fortune 100 Boards show that despite the business and economic clout of the group, APAs remain absent from corporate boards. 76% of Fortune 100 companies lack APA representation on their boardrooms. In 2009, 23 Asian Pacific Americans held just 27 board seats at 24 companies in the Fortune 100.  APAs constitute over 5% of the US population and more than $500 billion in purchasing power.
