The Center for Asia Leadership Initiatives (CALI) is a group of non-profit international organizations established in 2014 with the purpose of addressing business, social, and policy challenges in Asia through research, development, training, and publications. The idea of the Center was sparked by the hope of connecting the vast educational resources at world-leading institutions with individuals and organizations in Asia who are working to address the core challenges of our times.

The Center currently runs under the guidance of 15 dedicated and social-minded stewards from 9 countries, working out of offices in Boston, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Tokyo, and Manila. Among many other accomplishments, the Center has produced ten books: the 5-volume Rethinking Asia series; Finding the Leaders in Us: New Goals for the Future; Redefining Success: Learning to Lead for Change; Next Generation Leadership: Empower Youth to Shape the Future of Asia; Leaders in Development: Enhancing Your Leadership Effectiveness in a Changing World; Leadership That Triumphs: Moment of Greatness in the Work of Leadership; and many additional articles, opinion pieces, and editorials.


Our current and past supporters and collaborators are like-minded organizations who generously support us through financial or other means. They are of diverse industries and fields but are engaged in such leadership initiatives as education, philanthropy, youth empowerment, policy advocacy, the promotion of intercultural exchange, and cutting-edge research.
