The Obama Foundation Leaders: Asia-Pacific program is a one-year leadership development and community engagement program that seeks to inspire, empower, and connect emerging leaders from across the Asia-Pacific region.
About the Program
The Leaders: Asia-Pacific program focuses on building a tightly-knit cohort, while simultaneously supporting individuals and their initiatives. Throughout the year, Leaders participate in virtual skill-building workshops, networking opportunities, and a variety of moderated conversations with issue-area experts and prominent figures. Leveraging the full power of the Obama network, Leaders grow their impact on critical issues in their communities and around the world.
The Obama Foundation Leaders: Asia-Pacific Program is more than just a leadership program—it’s a community of support, enduring friendship, and lifelong connections.

MEET THE LEADERS
Designing Leaders: Asia-Pacific
At the beginning of the year, we invited a group of 21 emerging leaders from 16 countries and territories across the Asia Pacific for a hands-on workshop in Hawaiʻi. Together, we explored how to design the future Leaders program in the region. Incorporating their input, passion, and drive, the context-specific and engaging leadership program has come to life!
Get a closer look at the Hawaiʻi design workshop and the 21 leaders who helped craft the current program.
