The Greater Washington Chapter of Ascend is just one of the 51 chapters (professional and student combined) across the country. We are honored to serve as the chapter hub for the surrounding areas of our nation’s capital providing professional development and career enhancement programs across multiple industries. The Greater Washington chapter also supports four student chapters: University of Maryland, Johns Hopkins University, George Washington University, and the newly added George Mason University.

While many of these opportunities focus on Pan-Asians, people of all backgrounds are invited to become members and participate in the programs and initiatives Ascend GW hosts. In partnership with many of our sponsors, we build programs that enrich individuals and organizations from entry-level to executives of Fortune 500 companies.
