In recognition of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, we’re joined by global product information leader, Kana Ueda, who discusses her career journey as an Asian woman with us. From cultural expectations to imposter syndrome, Kana shares why advocating for yourself as an Asian woman is critical to career success.
