When asked, how would you introduce/ define yourself?
I am a woman who is passionate about using technology to create diverse and inclusive communities. I believe Inclusion is everyone’s responsibility, and we can all do more to encourage diversity in our business practices and our lives.
What is your current role at WiFA? (sponsor/committee member)
My organization is a sponsor and partner of WiFA via the Bloomberg Women’s Community in Hong Kong.
What are your key goals in BWC this year?
The Women’s Community is one of the biggest Diversity and Inclusion communities in Bloomberg’s Hong Kong Office with over 400 members. I’d like to continue to grow the number of members, and to collaborate with our other communities on mental health initiatives. My goal is to work with our partner organisations in Hong Kong to influence other firms to grow and develop their diversity and inclusion initiatives.
Tell us one thing that is important for #CreatingTheWorkforceOfTheFuture.
When I think about the workforce of the future, I’d like to see more leaders recognising the value of building diverse teams, and leaders working to create a culture of inclusion where everyone’s opinion is valid.
What advice would you give to women who want to lead?
The only person stopping you is you! Be confident in your abilities. Work hard, be kind and be fair- help other people and don’t be afraid to ask for help along the way. You don’t have to do it all yourself, or have all the answers all the time. Delegation will help your team develop. Building a diverse network is vital as it brings a broad range of perspectives and it expands your world view.
