Like, Asians in leadership roles or Asian leadership speakers?

Asians in leadership roles that we can reach out to for either mentorship or networking purposes, or just look at as role models. Example would be David Lee CCO of Squarespace. Could even be an ACD or higher at any agency

Sadly, there aren’t a lot of Asian high up creatives. And what’s even worse… whenever I did meet one during interviews, and expressed my admiration and interest to stay in touch… They always felt awkward and I ended up ruined my opportunity 🤷🏻‍♀️

There are a few names for you though (I only met some of them):

Adrian Chan - VP CD at Saatchi & Saatchi

Pam Fujimoto - Freelance CD/ECD (she was at The Many most recently)

Vince Lim - ECD at Argonaut NYC

Jeff Fang - CD at Goodby

Would love if other people can also post more names!

I honestly had no idea. My guess… I think those folks are introverted. They feel awkward to be complimented and spoken to like a role model 🤷🏻‍♀️ is that an Asian thing? Or maybe they felt like I was being a suck up? I really had no clue. I was just being my genuine self, telling them how happy it made me to meet and see another fellow Asian creative, doing so well, in hiring position.

Is your agency doing anything for AAPI Heritage Month?

I've been seeing a lot of ADCOLOR posts on linkedin, and some of the people who are liking and reposting it are some of the same people who were blatantly racist and rude to me when I worked with them. I wish there was something I could say/do about it, but it's literally making my blood boil seeing them like posts about "uplifting" and "supporting" BIPOC, only because I know that once they get off their screens and they're the meanest people


Happy Lunar New Year!
