Asians in Consulting

Why are there so few Asian men in consulting senior leadership? Seems like Asian females are more common.

Some companies (like my old one) have this people scorecard that track percentage of women and percentage of minorities in leadership. Promote an asian female and you get credit for both numbers. Promote an asian male and you only get credit for the minority number. I also agree with the EQ argument, but it’s important to know that the issue comes from both sides.

If its just box checking, then you can always tell people you identify as whatever you need to check off more boxes. Problem solved.
