E07: On breaking the bamboo ceiling - Rock The Boat
About this episode
If you are looking for other Asian-hosted and Asian-produced podcasts, then you’d want to subscribe to Rock the Boat. We have today Lucia and Lynne, the power ladies behind this amazing show. You’ll get to hear why gathering communities is important in the causes we believe in. And also the double whammy Asian women have to deal with in the corporate world: think glass ceiling and bamboo ceiling, the latter being something Lucia will explain more in this episode. You’ll also walk away with tactics on how to be intentional in checking in with your chief best friend as well as productivity tips from this awesome duo. I’m super stoked to know that Lucia and Lynne are transforming the stories around the Asian identity and how we should always aim to rock the boat.
