About us



Build a world where we all can achieve to our full potential

At the Multicultural Leadership Institute, we enable you to activate and harness the full potential of each and every employee.

We do this through company-wide keynotes and events by our CEO, Joy Chen. 

And we offer the Asian American Leadership Accelerator, a 6-week online course on the unwritten rules of the game.  

The Multicultural Leadership Institute is a WBENC- and NSMDC-certified minority- and woman-owned business.
