We’re joined by former CEO of Evite, Victor Cho, in this episode. Victor is also an entrepreneur, having started several tech ventures, and serves on several boards including Modo. Victor’s passionate about making positive social change and mentoring the next generation of Asian leaders. Today, he’ll share his journey to becoming a corporate leader with us.
We’ll also talk about the lack of Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) representation within corporate America, how AAPI employees can increase their visibility and gain sponsorship, and how companies can build and expand their efforts to develop and recruit underrepresented employees for executive leadership roles.
