January – December 2023
Connect and Inspire
Complementary to the Ascend Webinars, the new Engage & Ascend (EA) discussions serve as a community of practice for attendees of the webinars. The 60-minute EA sessions provide attendees the additional opportunity to engage and examine the main points of the webinars and connect with other quality professionals via facilitated breakout groups. Held one week after the webinar, the EA discussions encourage cross-industry engagement to network, gain new perspectives, and discuss relevant challenges and applicable tools within a virtual setting. EA discussions and Ascend Webinar attendees also gain access to an online resource portal, complete with curated quality body of knowledge materials for each webinar topic to inspire organizational excellence.
ASQE Organizational Member contacts will receive emailed invites to attend the 2023 Engage & Ascend discussions, per their status as either active Affiliate Employees or Affiliate Members. Registration is free to attend.

“Here is a great opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of how ASQE and ASQ members can collaborate to increase member value. By attending Ascend Workshops, you can share thoughts and ideas on topics like focusing our technological tools to obtain the results we want. Your inputs will also be summarized and shared with ASQ technical communities. I have participated in three workshops this year, and they are wonderful opportunities for thought leadership and networking.”
