“Pathways to Success” offers career advancing tools and networking skills to navigate the paths to senior leadership in government.


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Asian American Government Executives Network (AAGEN) will hold its 10th annual Leadership Development Training Workshop at the Doubletree Hotel in Crystal City, VA on June 5, 2014. The workshop is designed to provide valuable learning and networking opportunities for all public servants to enhance their professional careers.


"Today’s aspiring leaders need knowledge and support to guide them on the path of senior leadership," said Dr. Tin Cao, AAGEN Chairman. “AAGEN’s in-depth workshop provides many insights and inroads to ascend to the leadership ranks, as well as opportunities to network and gain mentorship from those already in the highest echelons of government.”

The workshop agenda focuses on helping managers and staff improve their leadership effectiveness and career potential. Speakers include career, political and retired government executives, academic experts and industry leaders with extensive experience and knowledge in a variety of fields. Distinguished key speakers include Mr. Kshemendra N. Paul, Program Manager Information Sharing Environment, White House, and Gen. John F. Campbell, the 34th Vice Chief of Staff, United States Army.

AAGEN will also provide its signature Executive Career Coaching sessions to attendees, where each participant can meet face-to-face with an executive coach for individual consultation and advice.

Following the working AAGEN will hold its annual Leadership Banquet, where several distinguished leaders will be recognized for their exceptional public service and personal achievements as Asian Americans and/or Pacific Islanders in government. Among the awardees were: Dr. James C. Meng, US Navy; Major General Sharon Dunbar, US Air Force; Major General Antonio Taguba (Retired), Chair of the Pan Pacific American Leaders and Mentors Organization (PPALM) ; and Dr. Judy Chu, US House of Representatives (D-California).
