More Asian Leaders Wanted By International Companies

World Journal, Posted: Nov 08, 2008


NEW YORK The 2008 Asian Leadership Summit, held in New York City, Thursday, and sponsored by IBM, GE Electronics and HSBC Bank, saw more than 400 representatives from U.S. companies, reports The World Journal. The American companies said they would like to put more Asians in leadership positions in both the United States and Asia. The summit focused on understanding markets in Asia and Asian markets in the United States, fostering Asian leaders, and ways for international companies to give back to Asia. During the event, Lucy Chan, IBM senior project executive, shared insights from her 30 year career at IBM. Chan said many Asian Americans are good team players, who are used to taking orders, but it's hard for them to assume a leadership role. Speaking personally, she said she worked as a good, obedient employee for 15 years. The company finally recognized her and put her in important positions when she started to take the lead in projects. She said she hopes more Asian Americans take opportunities to stand out and learn to be leaders.
