#Breakthebias today & everyday!

As an Asian Australian senior executive with lived experience, I have experienced many forms of stereotypes and biases throughout my career. IWD is a great reminder that we are grateful of the achievements of those who came before us & appreciative of those who stand beside us now, and forging the way for those who will come after.
Our experiences shape who we are. We need to take conscious action on a DAILY basis. From our spoken words to our chosen actions, every little gesture & behaviour makes a difference in breaking the bias. Culture does not make people. Rather, people make culture and we need to ‘walk this talk’ together and on a daily basis. I encourage you to commit to #speakthebias, smash stereotypes, break inequality and reject discrimination – today and everyday for a progressive community! There is power we bring together when we celebrate together – today and everyday!
