I lived in NY and Bay Area before returning to NY. It's an interesting thing you brought up that I didn't really think about 🤔.

I do feel less discriminated and just seeing more Asians at work (FAANG) was much better for my mental health. There's more cammaderie too than Asians at work in NY but also way less of us here.

That said, my current job in NY has more women, my big boss is Black, and it's been better than my other experiences in NY.

I have other Asian male friends in advertising who work with women leadership and they feel it's very different too. So that might be something to consider.

Do you find being an Asian in this industry has had any pros /cons or no affect on your success?


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


I’m proud of you everyone!!


How have your respective agencies, leaders, and teams responded to the influx of discrimination and hate against Asians, as well as the nuances & intersectionality of uplifting women, BLM, etc?

How did you feel about how they may or may not have acknowledged this, and if they did, are they putting/planning to put action behind their words?
