WorkPride - Community-in-focus panels for ethnicity: Asian

With the increasing awareness around intersectionality and its importance, this community-in-focus series of panels on ethnicity explores how our identity combines with ethnicity and the resulting challenges and lived experiences this creates. With a particular focus on Asian communities, this discussion will cover topics including:

- What it means to be LGBTQ+ and Asian

- Identity challenges faced by people of Asian descent 

- Challenges faced by the Asian diaspora

- The impact of being out in an Asian family

- The lived experiences of Asian communities during Covid-19

    Product Specialist
    Macquarie Asset Management
    I am a Product Specialist in the Client Solutions Group within Macquarie Asset Management, focusing on fundraising, structuring and client servicing for the Private Credit business. I also sit on the steering committee of Macquarie’s Pride employee network group in EMEA. I joined Macquarie after gaining a Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws from The University of Sydney, as part of the 2017 Graduate Programme in Sydney, Australia. I began my career in Macquarie in the Specialist Investments team in Sydney, which involved structuring and managing a range of tailored investment solutions. Following this, I worked in the Fund Finance team based in New York, which specialises in lending to private equity funds, private credit funds, real estate funds and fund of funds. I joined Macquarie Pride EMEA as a result of my aim to help make the lives of future generations of LGBT+ individuals better, which was something the previous generation has helped me with. Outside of work, I am a keen tennis player, I like to learn languages and would not mind taking the spotlight in karaoke.
