Pinnacle was launched by Ascend in 2013 to focus on the Pan-Asian Corporate Board Directors.
As of July 2013, Pan-Asian men and women still account for only 1.8 percent of the 1,214 Fortune 100 Board director seats, in comparison to the 2012 projected US Census Asian population of 7.8 percent. Over 82% of the Fortune 500 Corporations have no Pan-Asians on their Boards. Ascend’s recent analysis of Fortune 500 companies show only 85 Pan-Asians on their Boards with seven holding two seats each. 
Pinnacle will use the push-and-pull model to increase the number of Fortune 500 Corporate Board directors of Pan-Asian descent. Ascend believes that the community needs to actively commit to “filling the Corporate Board Pan-Asian candidate pipeline” with Board-ready candidates and will endeavor to create greater connections between Pan-Asian leaders and the broader business community. – AscendLeadership.org
